Bookstore Graphics

Bespoke images for unique bookstore promotions

1. Roadmap Store Art

The standout feature of the bookstore map is the artwork, which is hand-drawn by artist Kevin Cannon. Our stores use the art on social media profiles, mugs, hats, patches, stickers, T-shirts, tote bags, letterhead, return address stamps — you name it. Kevin Cannon gives each store individualized care that highlights their quirky traits, making the artwork a spectacular branding tool. Use your store art to create custom merch that creates customer pride for your store and improves your bottom line.

"My 4- and 8-year-old nephews made me a snowglobe featuring Kevin Cannon's drawing of my store from the roadmap for Christmas.  My favorite present ever!" --Kathy Magruder, Pagerturners (Indianola, IA)


"We adore Kevin Cannon's art and have used it for a number of things, including stamps and a large 3-inch patch, which is beautiful. We always keep the items near the cashwrap and customers buy them routinely." --Emily Hall, Main Street Books (St. Charles, MO)


"We commissioned Kevin for a custom design to put on onesies, as seen on my son, Jack, in the attached image. The onesies were a Small Business Saturday item for us, one of six new merch items we launched that day. Kevin was a dream to work with, and we love love love the roadmap." --Danny Caine, The Raven Bookstore (Lawrence, KS)
