Jay Cooper has worked as a creative director and designer of magazines, books, apparel, and advertising for two decades. He’s had the good luck to design covers for New York Times bestsellers as well as literary classics, and the even better luck to work on art and advertising campaigns for over one hundred Broadway musicals and plays. However, nothing makes him happier than returning to his literature-loving roots and creating and illustrating stories for kids. He lives with his wife and children in Maplewood, New Jersey.
