A Day in Rockport

Hey! I wrote a little book to accompany the work of friend Mary Faino, artist and owner of The Paper Mermaid, a lovely store in Rockport, Massachusetts

A Day in Rockport

A Day in Rockport features several spots around an iconic New England coastal village, with a page of fascinating facts about Rockport in the back of the book that correlate with the featured images. From Mill Pond to the Rockport Art Association to the Headlands, Rockport’s special beauty is evoked. Even so, the appeal of A Day in Rockport is universal. Even if readers aren’t familiar with the town of Rockport, they can still enjoy the journey of a day in a seaside village. Artist Mary Faino utilizes various mediums and techniques in her illustrations, resulting in page after page of charming collages — a layered look that offers new visual delights each time the book is read.

From the back cover:

“Come to Rockport for a day. Watch the sun rise from the beach and set over the harbor. Artist Mary Faino and writer S.D. Kelly take you on an evocative tour of this charming coastal town.”
