Don’t let the bedbugs bite

Sleep’s beneficial effects on childhood cognitive development

By Rebecca Astill

Cover, inner pages, bookmark, propositions, PowerPoint slide.
Concept, illustration, typography, book design and layout.

Background information:
Rebecca wanted her book to have a look that matched the title, like “a children’s book.” With pleasure I illustrated the sleeping young animals and their ‘annoying bed bugs’. Each chapter has its own sleeping creature, and one extra bed bug. The special paper for the cover completes the soft look.

Thesis defense: 22 – 04 – 2015
@ VU University Amsterdam

Printing: Ipskamp Drukkers
Special paper cover: Natural Evolution White

“To get Ilse involved in Rebecca’s thesis was a great tip-off. It’s the most beautiful thesis I ever saw!
