Janine Vangool is 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."
