Hi, I'm Janine—the publisher, editor and designer of UPPERCASE. My publications celebrate the process of making, the commitment to craft and the art of living creatively. My desire to create books from concept to design to production is born from my complete love of books. Holding and admiring them as objects, and writing, reading and learning—I love stepping into the worlds created within their pages. Prior to founding UPPERCASE, I worked as a freelance graphic designer for arts and culture clients. I also owned a gallery and papergoods shop, sold a line of greeting cards wholesale, handmade 10,000 books (with lots of help!), taught typography at a college level and did so many other things!
