Artist’s Book, ‘Creative Callaloo,’ Showcases V.I. Culture
January 15, 2019
St. Croix artist Danica David has released a new book, “Creative Callaloo,” which celebrates Crucian culture in words and art.
“I poured my heart and soul into this book” David said. She designed “Creative Callaloo” from cover to cover.
“I even studied color theory to learn what colors go best with food and which colors make food more appealing. You’ll notice I don’t use much yellow in the food photographs,” she said.
The book was published by Editorial Campana and released just in time for Christmas. As Amazon shipped out copies across the United States, St. Croix’s local bookshop, Undercover Books & Gifts, sold and gift wrapped a slew, some for islanders and some destined for friends and family afar.
