Shrieking Tree

Book Design

In 2009, we made our first foray into professional book production. From concept and design all the way to marketing and distribution, we carried the stories of nine homeless teenagers to thousands of homes in the midwest through our book, From a Growing Community, Iowa’s Homeless Youth. The book helped raise over $40,000 for local youth shelters and spawned Drake University’s Community Press program, in which students in writing and design classes collaborate to create books to benefit local non-profit organizations.
