Annemarie O’Brien is a San Francisco-based author and traveller of the world, whose new book, Lara’s Gift, is being released in 2013. She needed a site to feature the book, as well as a blog and interviews with authors of books with either dog themes or set in countries around the world. I used her book cover to create a snowy design featuring the two main characters, Lara and her borzoi. Then separate but complimentary designs were created to feature her Dog Reads and World Reads author interviews.
