At Downtown Bookworks, our mission has always been to keep children engaged in reading, and in the world around them with books that are rigorously edited and thoughtfully designed to feel good in small hands. Since we first launched in 2010, our list evolved organically to reflect our passions for science and nature, art and design, social justice, and superheroes!
We feel strongly that big ideas can be translated in a meaningful way for little people and as often as possible, we try to do just that. We also see it as an honor and an obligation to introduce diverse voices and visuals, to publish books that all children can connect with, to open minds and hearts in the hopes that they will stay that way.
Georgia combines eye-catching color combos, pop-sensibility, and a love of legibility to create books with wide appeal. In addition to art directing and designing the full line of Downtown Bookworks titles, Georgia has also illustrated many of them including: the four Generation Girl books, My Favorite Shoes, My Favorite Purse, and the Allegra Biscotti books. She loves working on books for a younger audience as she has two kids of her own (who like to give their own over-the-shoulder art direction) and really enjoys getting to work with an array of illustrators.
