Why We’re Here

It's a book about public broadcasters and the crucial role they play in any community. When public broadcasters actively engage in the places they live, when they step outside of their traditional programming and seek to use the airwaves while working with the people, positive change does happen. It's a hopeful look at working together after changing fundamentally the way an organization thinks of itself; not apart from, but with. And that, after the turbulence, conflict and friction that comes from collaborative efforts, leads to good things.

    That’s some beautiful typography there. Love the cover design, too. Looks like it was a fun project.

    I love my kindle and all, but I do miss the aesthetics and craft of a well designed book. Every now and then, I just need to have the real deal in my hands.

    thanks Mike! there is a version for Kindle we did as well but it was really, extremely not as fun to make. all the type work in layout was quite fun and the paper is really smooth. feels great to read the real thing for sure.
