Author and illustrator Pamela Pease owns Chapel Hill's Paintbox Press. Prior to this she had a twenty-year career in the fashion industry in Los Angles. Her master's program project at Syracuse University was a pop-up book. Leaving the fashion industry and coming to Chapel Hill provided her with the opportunity to pursue this type of book. Taylor discusses the books Pease has published and the creative process the author follows in developing them. It usually takes Pease two years to create a book.
