Laura Freeman: Fancy Party Gowns

Sometimes we like to highlight our artists' accomplishments outside the licensing industry. In addition to the great work Laura Freeman does for our customers, she is an award winning children's book illustrator. Her latest is, Fancy Party Gowns: The Story of Fashion Designer Ann Cole Lowe. The story is an inspiring one that underscores Ann's perserverence in spite of racial prejudice. 

Laura illustrated the book which was written by Deborah Blumenthal and published by little bee books. The book has received wonderful reviews from the likes of Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly. You can read an interview with Laura and Deborah on the making of the book here.


Join us at SURTEX 2017

We're scheduled to meet with many of you starting this Sunday, but if we couldn't connect, please stop by our booth, #2825 at Javits. We've got a great new look to go with our sort of new name. And as I'm writing this, our new look website is about to launch (in the next day or so). Our artists have a lot of work to show you. Looking forward to seing everyone. - Mark
