WHO MADE THE BOOK?

Elizabeth Cogar

Writer

ElizabethCogar.com

Elizabeth grew up in Richmond, moved elsewhere and returned to work as a journalist and raise her two children and quite a few dogs. She's worked in the tourism and education fields and written for many publications including Style Weekly, Virginia Living, Richmond Times-Dispatch, Richmond Magazine and RHome. Her creative alter ego is a sewist and screen printer. Having wandered far and wide, she's particularly fond of a good travel guide. When she noticed that a new one had not been written about Richmond lately, she challenged herself to do it, with the help of the three talents to the right and an editorial assistant, her daughter Liza.

Chris Milk Hulburt

Hand-drawn Lettering & Art

Chris is a self-taught artist working and living with his family in Richmond, Va. His bright, evocative work draws on familiar geography, flora, and fauna to convey the unsung magic of small moments and unregistered details. He works primarily in paint on wood, but also makes large scale public commissions, textiles, and sculpture. His work has been shown in galleries in New York, Providence,Virginia and North Carolina, but is largely done on commission for private collections. Musical and iconic, his paintings draw on the stylis- tic traditions of folk and naive art, imbued with tender humor

and haunting poignancy.
