Chicken Makes the Ice Cream Taste Better

Book Design

826NYC, a nonprofit organization founded by author Dave Eggers, supports students ages six to eighteen with their creative and expository writing skills and is dedicated to helping teachers inspire their students to write. This book, created in partnership with Edible Schoolyard and with an introduction written by acclaimed chef Marcus Samuelsson, is a collection of the students work written by 6th and 7th graders at P.S. 7 SAMUEL STERN in East Harlem.

The design concept is inspired by the quirky title of the book, vintage wallpaper, kitschy colors, and smells of home cooking.

An event following the publication of the book was held at Warby Parker’s Meatpacking district store, where famous chefs read the students work aloud and awesome food buttons made by Elizabeth Grabaer were distributed.
