New Mexico Book CoOp Lunch


The March 19, 2010, lunch meeting of the New Mexico Book Co-op features Rex Barron, book cover designer and illustrator. Book covers are one of the first ways books are sold and have to be eye catching and visually express what is in the book. NM Book Co-op member Ruthe Francis will also participate. Her experience as a bookseller of many years demonstrated what book sold because of a good cover and what books did not sell because of a bad cover design.

Rex Barron has illustrated seven children’s books, authored two children’s books, illustrated for the Albuquerque Alibi, Albuquerque Monthly Magazine, and is currently a cartoonist for New Mexico Breeze electronic newspaper. He illustrated “The Big Bug Ball” and “Eggbert” among many others. He worked for Putnam & Sons; Harcourt, Brace, & Jovanovich; McGraw Hill; MacMillan; Hanna-Barbera; and illustrated the Claritin Calendar for Schering-Plough.

The New Mexico Book Co-op meets monthly at the Golden Corral at 3401 NM HWY 528 near Alameda and Coors across from Lowe’s. Attendees pay for their own lunch. For information on the NM Book Co-op or to RSVP contact 505/344-9382.
