About Librarian Alter Ego Posters

During a workshop with designer Silas Munro I created the designer alter ego of Randy Bookman the raunchy librarian to amplify, undermine, and rediscover elements of myself. I based Randy’s design process on my parents' careers as librarians and my own experience working at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
