The cover that you see before you had to go through a long evolution of sketches and different typography styles and I thought it would be fun to show you all the different sketches I did. Note that the title of the book changes during the evolution. (A little Easter Egg for all you diehard Lisa Yee fans out there)

P.S.-My personal favorites are outlined in RED.

Everyone at Arthur A. Levine Books were even kind enough to pose.

Arthur Levine and senior editor Cheryl Klein strike a pose.

Elizabeth Parisi (art director) and Cheryl Klein serve up a slightly different pose.
