• 2014 Beyond Words Calendar

In collaboration with photographer Lauren Zurchin, we created this beautiful fantasy author calendar to benefit two non-profits, Worldbuilders and First Book. The authors included are: Holly Black, Gail Carriger, Brandon Sanderson, Cassandra Clare, Tessa Gratton, Lauren Kate, Gregory Maguire, Brandon Mull, Lauren Oliver, Christopher Paolini, Patrick Rothfuss, Maggie Stiefvater, Tad Williams, and Brenna Yovanoff. Each month features a photograph of a different author (or authors, in one case) dressed in custom costumes made by Lauren and placed in unique locations with one-of-a-kind props. The overall effect is sometimes dark, sometimes ethereal, sometimes whimsical, and completely fantasy. Digital design and layout by Jeremy West.
