Jim Parkinson has been happily designing letterforms for more than 50 years and will celebrate his 75th birthday this year. One side of this slippery-slinky accordion has 75 portraits of Jim from his infancy up to the present. On the reverse side, a long string of "cigar bands" carries a rhyming text of 75 words (each pop-up has a different capital letter from one of his display faces) to celebrate some of the many typefaces he has designed in his long career. I have been with Jim for only a tenth of his long life and hope that he will find this funny book a fitting tribute and something to make him keep smiling.
Artist BioDorothy A. Yule is fascinated by paper engineering and has created many unusual pop-up and movable books. She often collaborates with her twin sister, Susan Hunt Yule, on books produced under her imprint, Left Coast Press, two of which were published as trade books by Chronicle Books (Souvenir of New York and Souvenir of San Francisco). She and her twin also collaborate on eccentric ephemera as Les2twins. Her book, Memories of Science, won a Distinguished Book Award from the Miniature Book Society in 2013 and the Meggendorfer Prize for Artist Books from the Movable Book Society in 2014.
