Richard Downs
Self Portrait
I have had the pleasure over the last couple years of being on the creative team at developing cover art for their educational DVD's. Several months ago I was commissioned to create a self portrait for an upcoming secret book project produced as a gift for staff, authors, artists & associates.
" left the book publishing business years ago, however that didn't stop us from creating yet another book in a grand fashion. Why make a book if it isn't jaw dropping amazing!' said, Bruce Heavin
Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin worked with designer Stefan G. Bucher to push the printer & binders to the point of absolute breaking. Needless to say, they created a book that is a beautiful object of art. THE ART OF LYNDA.COM volume 1: 2005-2010 features artist profiles including myself, John Derry, Bruce Heavin, Don Barnett, John Hersey and Maria Rendon. There were only 500 books made and they were all made & bound by hand. Thank you, Lynda, Bruce, Heather and Stefan!
