The only think I love more than design is dogs, which is why I adore this new children’s book from Eight-Hour Day designer Katie Kirk. “Eli, No!” is is the story about a dog (her own chocolate lab, Eli), amusing antics and unconditional love. You can pick up a copy for the design/dog lovers in your life on Amazon or B&N.com.
The book was inspired by my nephew, Parker. Whenever we were together, I would say “Eli no!” — and every time I said it, he would say it too! He liked how fun it was to say and so did I. I had always wanted to write and illustrate a children’s book, and I thought this idea was too fun not to do.
