Artist Statement

"This cover was inspired by the story, \"The Twelve Dancing Princesses.\" Each of the princesses was hand-cut from black paper with an Xacto knife. Then they were scanned and cleaned up on the computer. The title was hand letter with pencil and ink before being scanned into the computer to be adjusted. " - Mercy Victoria McMahon

Mercy McMahon is a student and an artist. When she is not cutting paper, she can be found baking, reading or getting excited about science and foreign languages.
