Just received my copy of The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan and am thrilled with how the jacket art printed. I had the pleasure of working with designer Abby Weintraub of whom I’ve been a long time fan and the most wonderful creative director Carol Devine Carson.
This is a great read that weaves together four marriages, the diamond business and the advertising line that changed engagement rings forever.
The Engagement’s will be available this June if you’d like to buy a wonderfully printed good ol’ fashioned hard copy.
