Libraries Are For Everyone: B&W English

A few days ago the kick-booty Brittany G., Youth Service Director at <a href=”http://www.waunakeepubliclibrary.org/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Waunakee Public Library</a>, reached out to me. She had a request for me – to make black and white images of the original&nbsp;<em>Libraries Are For Everyone&nbsp;</em>signs. &nbsp;She, like many librarians out there, has grayscale restrictions on printing materials for her summer programming. Like any requests I receive, I answered her honestly: I wasn’t sure if it was doable or that it would look good, but I’d try and get back with her. I tweaked one image and sent it to her for an okay, and when I received it (I think it was something like <em>”That’s perfect! I love it! Thank you!!!!”)</em>, I adjusted the six other images.

And because I know there are others out there who would appreciate this, I’m sharing my work here. Again, please use in any way (including remixing). I also want to again point out that I do not want my name on the work – especially if it’s as a sign or on pamphlets or whatever – it takes away from the impact of the simple imagery and statement.

Now, without further ado, grayscale versions:

And please know that you can write and ask me about anything. I seriously consider all requests, and promise that I will answer honestly – which might&nbsp;end with an apology that I either can’t or won’t fulfill the request. I have to balance what I can do easily, with other more time-consuming things (which includes self care). So write me! You won’t know what I will say or do until you&nbsp;reach out.
