About Us

Amy writes poems. Marge takes fine art photographs. One day they hatched a plan to make a book.

It was a moment of serendipity.  Marge was showing fine art photographs at a local exhibition.  One image in particular caught everyone’s attention.  The gallery tag asked, “Can you guess what this is?”  Almost no one could.  At the same show, Amy was exhibiting handmade books that celebrated a lively escapade between kids and their grandmother.  The very instant the two artists discovered their common goal and complementary mediums, Wonder began.

“Making this book has been an amazing creative experience for both of us – a journey of discovery, sharing, compromise, looking and listening, and joy. Come explore with us.” — Marge and Amy
