Quoted Quarterly Podcast > Episode 16 > Ingrid Paulson

Hey, look! We have a Facebook page. Join the dozens of people that already “like” it.

In this episode Andrew and Ian have a conversation with book designer Ingrid Paulson. She talks about her start in book design, top-secret production on Harry Potter books, the design community in Toronto, and more.

Check out this stuff:

Ingrid was filmed by the Quill & Quire, talking about the book design of Heaven is Small. In our own talk she discusses creating a new paperback version of a hardback design, so this book is a good example of that.

Inrid contributed to a New York Times piece, “Favorite Book Cover Designs of 2012″.

Andrew mentions a gallery that licenses TV and movies for art. It’s Gallery 1988.

P.S. Please forgive the microphone problems. The audio for Ingrid and Ian is good, but Andrew is afraid he sounds like he’s trapped in an old coffee can on the crumbling floor of an abandoned mine.
