Ramona Boxes

Have you been saying to yourself, "Gee I like Ramona Quimby books but I wish I could buy them with a little house to keep them in."

Well if by "house" you mean "box" then boy-howdy do I have a treat for you! 

The Ramona Quimby Collection:

And for our big spenders out there, the complete collection:

The Complete Collection

A little bit more about Ramona: This project was a beast! Look at all those lovely spines, all lined up in a pretty little row, no easy feat my friends. Anyway, eight books were commissioned, illustrated, typeset (which involved a rather painful Quark to Indesign conversion), copy edited, color corrected, and printed within six months. I'm pretty sure this is some sort of record; I'm currently on hold with the Guinness World Records people—yea that's totally still a thing—to find out. I couldn't have been more proud of my small involvement in these reprints. I couldn't be happier they're all done.

Many congrats to all the managing editors, production people, camera rooms, freelancers and color wheels for making our little Ramona that much more special for young readers. Up next? Ralph S. Mouse and my personal favorite Ribsy. Heck yea!
