We're trying a new layout for the next episode of Monsters Are Real. This is the first draft. Would you let us know what you think and what you think could be improved? Things to consider: - How easily you feel you can read the text on the page - Layout - Visual Engagement (we want spreads to be visually attractive but not confusing/unnecessarily busy) Context: MONSTERS ARE REAL is a free, illustrated mini-series I produce to offer fun, engaging and accessible reading materials to children. I've been VERY LUCKY to partner with the powerfully-gifted Emily Walker (@emilywalkerillustration) in this episode who has created all of the amazing visuals for the story. This is episode 2.

It’s rare that any commissioned art within a Subway has held my attention, but Birgit Palma’s work for the Madrid Metro made me pause a few times as I scrolled through her poster-sized prints. What do you think? 🇪🇸 #illustration #prints #madrid #metro | @birgitpalma
