Gray Fedora

For nearly two decades, hundreds of thousands of avid followers have read Kerry Patterson’s New York Times bestselling books. This publication is comprised of stories from Kerry’s childhood in Washington state. The four illustrations were sketched from actual items that Kerry saved from his grandfather and family. I conferred with Kerry at each stage of the design and illustration process to ensure that all the details were meeting his expectations. One thousand two hundred copies were printed with hard back cover with dust jacket.
