DERT works with emerging designers to create unique, customized books. Each DERT book features the design and conceptual artwork created by graphic design students. DERT’s collaborative studio program partners with students at art schools to produce book products that are used for fundraising towards charitable literacy efforts. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book goes to the designer in support of their career advancement.

DERT turns everyday people into literacy activists. With your purchase, DERT donates all profits to our literacy partner, the Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP). Your purchase will help fund their mission to ensure that every child has the opportunity to enter school ready to succeed. PCHP’s nationwide network of program sites provides families with the necessary skills and tools to help children achieve their greatest potential in school and in life. Learn more at
