Five Questions for Erin and Phil Stead

 

 Five Questions for Erin and Phil Stead

Way to make me feel old. These two are completely adorable and I want their lives (and dog). When I asked them who their favorite Caldecott winners were, I loved that they both reached back to Evaline Ness, a choice both fresh and true to their DIY aesthetic. And despite being joined at the hip since high school, they each maintain a clear sense of artistic self, working in the same studio but (at least as I pictured it) back to back. Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. To the person who made my heart stop after the interview by insisting that it was pronounced “STEED,” wrong.
