Little U

Little U, the offspring of UPPERCASE magazine, is an occasional magazine/book for the young at heart. (Think of it as a smaller and cuter version of UPPERCASE!) With childlike wonder, Little U explores making, designing, illustrating and living. Highlighting children's books, surface pattern design, clothing and product design for young folk, and arts and crafts inspired by and/or made for children, this publication inspires and informs professional creatives and families alike.

Little U is small but mighty. It has a short stature at 5" x 6" but is hefty at 240 pages. 

Like all UPPERCASE publications, it is ads-free, has high production standards and is completely supported by its readership. Show your support for small, independent publishing and order your copy of Little U today!

10% of Little U profits are donated to UNICEF Canada to help children in need around the world.

Volume 3 will be ready to ship in June 2021. 

To help you decide if Little U is something you'll enjoy, I've made a walk-through video. Join me as I scroll through the design pages and show you what's inside this special little volume.
