This is so cool... Friend-of-Burlesque Katie Kirk wrote and illustrated a gorgeous children's book about her unconditional love for Eli, her Chocolate Labrador. A few years ago, some prototypes were produced, but now the book has been officially published by Abrams Books and can be purchased by anyone just about anywhere! We've been a fan of Katie's work for quite some time. She and her husband Nathan run the fantastic Eight Hour Day design studio here in Minneapolis. Together they've been featured in Communication Arts and HOW magazines and you may have seen some of the great work they've created for Target, The New York Times, Wired, or the Minnesota Orchestra.
Want to pick up a copy of the book and meet the author? Maybe even meet Eli? Head over to the Red Balloon Bookstore in Saint Paul this Saturday for the official "Eli, no!" Launch party!
