Working directly for publishers or in partnership with book packagers, Tom Carling has produced hundreds of children’s trade and school/library nonfiction books for publishers such as Scholastic, National Geographic Kids, Time Inc, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and Dorling Kindersly (Eyewitness). This naturally led to assignments from high school and college textbook publishers, like Macmillan Learning, who, wishing to tap Tom’s expertise in trade publications for young readers, have engaged him to design some of their most important titles in the sciences and humanities. Tom lives and works out of his loft in lower Manhattan, next to the Brooklyn Bridge.
