Gritty on Book Covers

Posted by Molly Murphy

Listen, we're from Philly, and we are very proud of our new official mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers NHL team, Gritty. He is perfect. Maybe you never noticed, but Gritty has made appearances on quite a few book covers. Don't believe us? Look again.

Molly grew up on the Jersey Shore and spent her childhood eating cheap pizza and being goth on the boardwalk all by herself. She received a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia before moving to New York to start her career in publishing. After a few years in the Big Apple, Molly decided it wasn't for her and returned to her favorite city in the world. She now enjoys a variety of design-related duties for the Quirk team, standing in the back of basement shows with her arms crossed, and reading in graveyards. She is the proud single parent of a sourdough starter and a black cat named Neon.
