Michelle Mackintosh is a Melbourne-based book designer and
illustrator with a passion for mixing up the discarded with the
new, collaging vintage, cute and modern aesthetics into something
unique. She has designed dozens of books on a wide range of topics,
from cookbooks and craft to city guides and diaries. She has
illustrated six books written by her husband Steve Wide, and has
worked on books for authors as diverse as Beci Orpin, Antonia

Gate, Jane Rocca and Pip Lincolne.
Her most recent book, Snail Mail, celebrates the lost art of written correspondence and continues to sell well both here and overseas.
