Samira Iravani is a thirty-three-year-old New York native, NYU graduate, and Associate Art Director with Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. Prior to that she was an Associate Art Director at Clarion Books (an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers), and a member of the Penguin Young Readers design group for five years.

 

Why Such Dainties? Once upon a time Samira was an Alice in Wonderland obsessed teenager. These two words were borrowed from the poem "Beautiful Soup" to claim her first creative space on the internet (sigh, livejournal) and have been her brand ever since.

 

Work With Me! If you'd like to hire me as a designer or sensitivity reader (I am available to read for Iranian or Shi'a Muslim content), contact me at samirairavani@gmail.com.
