Four Women: The Nina Simone Philips Recordings box set. "This booklet opens with a quote by Richard Pryor: ‘White people had Judy Garland—we had Nina. God bless ya baby!’ This statement inspired me to be brave with this project. I found some terrific illustrators to participate: Cheisel John contributed her first pieces of art for a CD project in this package; Jimmie James, a great collaborator with Verve, was experimenting with the idea of collage and stitching on a sewing machine. He showed me his first samples and I said let’s do it; and Alvin Ferris is a fantastic illustrator from London. We really lucked out, everyone brought their best to this project."
