Run Fast, Milo! by Julie Sola
Milo is like any dog…he loves to sleep and eat. But more than anything else, his favorite thing to do is run as fast as he can once he hears the words, "Run fast Milo!"
From Julie Sola, a Nashville-based artist and designer, comes Run Fast Milo! a true-life tale of a puppy who loves nothing more than running fast. It's a playful narrative that will quickly fuel an imagination and find a home in the heart. With its simple yet quirky sentences, a relatable tale of gleeful exuberance, and its bright, original illustrations, Run Fast, Milo! is that unique children’s book that can be enjoyed by a child while catching the creative eye of a parent. Tapping into an artistic-style honed at Hatch Print, Sola typeset Run Fast, Milo! by hand using antique Cheltenham type and hand-carved each of the images out of linoleum before hand-printing it on a 1964 Vandercook proofing press. It’s this uncommon artistic approach that lends an appealing Southern and country-music flair to Milo’s cheerful tale and one that will surely have it standing out on the bookshelf at home. Run Fast Milo! is a unique children’s book with an adventurous personality and an artistic hand-printed style.
