HB Magazine -- Hathaway Brown School, Shaker Heights, OH ... "In layout -- photography, illustration, type, paper selection and dynamic spreads -- it's a work of art. Copy also is top drawer, with very interesting profiles, narratives and shorts --not easy to do when your subject matter is solely devoted to news about alumni. But this is an interesting group of alums -- each with a story to tell."
