The New Brownies’ Book:
A Love Letter to Black Families
Chronicle Books
The New Brownies’ Book reimagines the very first publication created for African American children in 1920 as a must-have anthology for a new generation. Expanding on the mission of the original periodical to inspire the hearts and minds of Black children across the country, esteemed scholar Karida L. Brown and award-winning artist Charly Palmer have gathered the work of more than fifty contemporary Black artists and writers.

The result is a publication bursting with essays, poems, photographs, paintings, and short stories reflecting on the joy and depth of the Black experience—an immersive treasure trove that reminds readers of all ages that Black is brilliant, beautiful, and bold.

I had the privilege of designing the entire 200+ hardback publication.

Publish date is October 10, 2023. You can pre-order a copy at WHSmiths.

After the publish date, I will be showcasing a few selected spreads of the publication on my website.

Dr. Karida L. Brown
Kieron is a master of his craft. He designed the latest book for me and my co-author titled, The New Brownies Book: A Love Letter to Black Families (forthcoming with Chronicle Books).

Kieron demonstrated a keen eye for all elements of design--from the artistic layout and font curation to the more elusive and emotion provoking dimensions of design. He is super professional, meets deadlines ahead of time, and really listens to his client's wants and needs. As a result, our book is absolutely gorgeous, first class in its presentation, and primed to reach the top of the NYT Bestseller list.
