Henry & Vicky • By Ellie Brecher • Book design by Cindy Seip

About the book: A simple handwritten note was the inspiration to pen this limited edit edition dedication of the life and times of Henry and Vicky. The story of Henry Mikael begins in Aleppo, Syria, referred to as Halab in Arabic. An ancient even among the ancients, dating back to 5,000 B.C.

Henry earned his law degree and upon returning home married the love of his life. The book follows their adventures of 65 years of marriage, children and life.

About book designer Cindy Seip: Born with a crayon in one hand and camera in the other, Cindy Seip has never ventured far from her creative instincts. Through the years, her creative side took hair pin turns, but always finished with a checkered flag.

As an “A+” student in art, it was her 12th grade art teacher, Mr. Popovitch, that set her on a professional course in design introducing her to the Ft. Lauderdale Art Institute. There, she would earn her degree in Advertising Design.

She began her career at the Miami Herald Tropic Magazine and later started her own design + underwater portrait photography business.

 Over the years Seip has amassed an impressive client list with some high profile names like, Sony, Nasdaq, Ericsson, Blue Cross Blue Shield, AvMed, Miami International Book Fair, Breakthrough Miami and many more. Her accolades reflect her keen eye for design.

Seip resides in sunny Miami with her husband, Miami Herald Photojournalist, Al Diaz, two great kids and a cute Wheaten Terrier named Amanda Bubbles.
