Brave & Beautiful

Cast your favorite little person as a fearless literary figure--whether a newborn making a debut or a young child in the first few pages of his or her heroic tale--with this delightfully personalized print, featuring a custom, storybook-inspired illustration and your custom rave "review." For newborns, it's an imaginative antidote to ordinary birth announcements; for young children, it commemorates the magical story of early childhood.

Customize the character to reflect your child of choice (skin tone for all, plus gender and hair options for older kids). Add parents' names as "authors" of this masterpiece and write a review of your little one's story (by you or another doting relative) to add a wry and endearing touch to the print. Charmingly illustrated by Patricia Carlin to evoke timeless storybook classics, it makes an unforgettable tribute that will transition from nursery to bedroom to grown-up keepsake. Printed and framed in BonanzaWood® frame in Portland, Oregon.

Patricia Carlin and Northwest Framing for the Uncommon Collection

created by

Patricia Carlin and Northwest Framing for the Uncommon Collection

location

Pennsylvania

Patricia Carlin started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business. Patricia designed several product lines for the new venture. "We couldn't afford a writer at first, so I wrote my own copy for the glasses," Patricia says. The business did well, and Patricia found herself designing a range of tabletop products. When a publisher noticed the glassware at a gift show, they saw book potential. With their help, Patricia produced two books: "Glam Girl" and "Geeky Girl." Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says. "After I had my daughter I rediscovered the power these little sketches have to tell a story. Drawing was a fun way to communicate without language." She has won many awards for her design work and is the author of "How to Tell If Your Boyfriend is the Antichrist: And if he is, should you break up with him?"

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Personalized Storybook Art - Brave qualified for the Collection:

Original Design

Inspired by classic children's literature illustrations, our Personalized Storybook Art - Brave, illustrated by Patricia Carlin, offers creative portrayals of children as adventurous, timeless characters. Playful details like relatives' "review" of the child's debut and their birthday as "copyright" make this keepsake a truly individualized expression of a child's character, and a distinctive birth announcement or toddler tribute to be treasured for years to come.

      I have difficulty finding the right gift for my autistic grandson, and this was the perfect statement of my love for him. He recognizes his name and mine as "Nana" and can see it every day as a reminder of how proud I am of him.
