Saving the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect

Kelly and Rose designed this book for CSIRO Publishing; their first children’s book. The book features stunning illustrations by Coral Tulloch. Phasmid required careful text arrangement and font selection to make it easy for children to read.

Phasmid tells the remarkable story of the rediscovery and rescue of the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect. It was thought that this species was extinct – lost forever – until one moonlit night a few surviving insects were found on a single bush peeking out of a rock crevice.
