Animals Spell Love: Story Time & Craft with David Cundy

Every Saturday at 11am we host children's story time! Kids of many ages are welcome to attend. This week, we welcome special guest David Cundy, author of Animals Spell Love.

In Animals Spell Love, gorgeously written and designed by David Cundy, sixteen critters from the farthest reaches of the animal kingdom help readers of all ages learn how to express the word in sixteen languages from around the globe, from Czech to Amharic to Korean, and even including American Sign Language. Children and adults will delight in the way Cundy shapes the letters into animals, and his brief primers, complete with pronunciation guide for every incarnation, will help readers more fully appreciate, indulge in, and understand the languages of love.

Animals Spell Love is David Cundy’s debut children’s book, following his long career in the graphic arts. David has designed type at Linotype in New York and with the renowned type designer Matthew Carter in London. His graphic design firm, Design Trust, has created graphics for many organizations, including the Brooklyn Museum, Columbia University, and the Parsons School of Design. David has served on the board of directors of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and has taught in Yale’s graduate graphic design program.
