Mount Vernon Book Co. was my first jump into product design, having absolutely no idea what I was doing nor even where to procure the materials to do it. I ran the company in conjunction with my good friend Dan for two years during which we were commissioned for a variety of special projects ranging from portfolios to leather wallets and kept a regular stock of small journals and photo albums. While we have stopped taking orders at this time, MVBC was a valuable lesson in running a self-sustaining hobby project.
