The launch for Kelsey McKinney's book, God Spare the Girls, took place at Lost City Books in Washington, DC on June 25th, 2021. Guests enjoyed a great discussion and signed copies of this debut novel!
To add a special touch to the event, the organisers ordered 40 meters of our custom papel picado bunting, requesting for “GOD SPARE THE GIRLS” to be cut into the flags. They chose for us to make them in a blissful selection of tissue paper colours - 42-Sunset, 39-Bright Orange Marigold, 27-Plum, 44-Coral, 11-Dusky Sunset Pink, and 32-Bright Cherry Red - to match the pink sunset cover of the “GOD SPARE THE GIRLS” book. When making the papel picado we copied the font type from the book cover and added some pretty detailing either side to make the flags look very elegant and eye-catching.
They also received fifty free “GOD SPARE THE GIRLS” custom made papel picado waving flags (which come with all our custom papel picado orders) in the same colour selection.
The book is a mesmerizing debut novel set in northern Texas about two sisters who discover an unsettling secret about their father, the head pastor of an evangelical megachurch, that upends their lives and community—a story of family, identity, and the delicate line between faith and deception.

Our client kindly wrote to us after the event saying:
"I just wanted to say how amazing the banners looked at the book party. Everyone was so impressed, and they were the highlight of the party decor, for sure! Everyone was taking pictures of them!"
May the book be a great success!
Love from us all the team at ArtMexico! Xxx
