This was a unique project I worked on this winter.
Sue, an owner of The Cottage Book Shop in Glen Arbor, asked me to design a reusable tote. We created the original vector art for the layout, including a map of the State of Michigan and some added graphics that represent our state (i.e. a Lighthouse, fishing, moose, freighter, tulip, and cherries. The retro look of the design was inspired by vintage Michigan postcards.
Each bookstore listed on the back of the bag is a small thriving independent bookseller in the state of Michigan. Each shop will carry the bags to sell, promoting tourism in our own state and supporting local bookstores.
