    The illustration and design of misspent summers, an anecdotal travel guide by James Mcknight
    Published:
Miss Spent Summers is a collection of writings by adventure journalist James Mcknight about living and riding in the Portes Du Soleil in the Northern Alps, France. James has spent a large part of his life there and got to know and become friends with an array of local characters, who feature in his book. Most are missplaced Brits with a taste for the mountains and in Miss Spent summer we capture a glimpse in the their 'Work Hard Play Harder' lives.
 
I over saw the design and visual content of this book from start to finish, illustrating the characters, selecting the type and finishes of the paper as well as binding with bike bolts and hand cutting the sleeve.
