Earlier this week, Capstone's product development team got together to celebrate — and there's nothing editors and designers enjoy celebrating more than brand-new books. (Unless it's cake, of course!) While the books in these photos are brand-new Fall '13 releases, editors and designers haven't seen these books in almost a year, so it's a nice reminder of what customers will be seeing for the first time this fall. And because it's not a real party without some cake — especially if the cake in question is a DQ ice cream cake — we decided to indulge in some delicious treats featuring the one and only Katie Woo as well as some adorable Big Brother/Big Sister covers. Check out the photos from the big event below — and try to resist drooling over the cakes like I did.
In other exciting news, the latest phase of Capstone's "Be a Super Hero. Read" campaign is well underway with a "Get Caught Reading" contest! The details of the contest are simple — just snap a picture of yourself reading your favorite DC Super Hero book anywere you'd like and upload it to Capstone's Facebook page for a chance to win a DC Super Hero Prize Pack. One of my Chicago coworkers and I even ventured out into downtown Chicago to get in on the fun and take advantage of the last days of summer. We got caught up on the latest Supergirl adventure near the Bean and all over Millenium Park — where will you get caught reading?
