That's a woo and a hoo for Annette Simon! And a yay and a hay for Rafe Martin!
AIGA, the professional association for design, has selected a group of 100 examples of outstanding book and book cover design produced in 2005. Included in the list is Simon's Mocking Birdies and Rafe Martin's Birdwing! (There are other children's books on the list, but I haven't read or reviewed them. Go here to see the whole list.)
Thanks to A Fuse #8 Production for the news.
