A 32-page picture book of digital reproductions of my original watercolors done for the ArtsWorcester exhibition “Goodnight Worcester, Revisited” (on view from November 2015-March 2016) with accompanying poem describing Worcester, Massachusetts locations. The illustrations include Shrewsbury and Water Street views, the American Antiquarian Society, Union Station, the Public Library, City Hall, Hanover Theater, Mechanics Hall, colleges and universities, Elm Park, Ecotarium, Worcester Art Museum, and Worcester Historical Museum.

Approximately 19.5 cm x 15 cm. Double-sided, digitally printed. New edition printed in December, 2016. Soft cover; saddle stitched.

Please note, this is a revised edition from the 2011 edition of Goodnight Worcester. I still have some copies of the '11 edition (contact me if you would like the older one).

The story:
Shortly after my twins were born, I decided to write and illustrate them a book about their city. So when they were infants, we spent countless afternoons observing, drawing, and documenting parts of Worcester. The book was completed, printed (locally at American Printing in Auburn, Massachusetts) and given to Henry and Sophia when they turned one. It was their first birthday present. The new edition incorporates artwork from "Goodnight Worcester, Revisited" which was also an ArtsWorcester exhibition. Images of the 21 works can be viewed here.
