I was hired to design the package for this CD. Liz Kohlenberg and Judith Gottlieb (sisters) had decided to record an expertly-produced album of songs they’d written about their family and lives. It was important that the packaging convey the scope of the songs as well as the significance of the project itself.

For the front of the jacket, we used a painting by Liz’s daughter, Leah. I extrapolated the print color theme from there.
