Carson City School District is pleased to announce Carson High School Senior Edwin Iza, 17, has earned a contract with the Three Ravens Publishing Company for his graphic design work in creating a winning book cover design for “The Raven and the Crow: The Gray Throne,” the second book in a new six-book epic fantasy novel series.

Two students were recognized for the work they created as part of Ms. Patricia Ababio’s Graphic Design class at Carson High School. Four of Ababio’s classes participated in the design competition. Edwin Iza’s design will be the book cover for The Gray Throne while Morigan Ruffner’s design earned runner-up.

Written by Michael K. Falciani, the pen name of Mr. Kinkade DeJoseph, a teacher at Bordewich Bray Elementary School, the first book of the series, “Dark Storm Rising,” was released on June 15, 2021. Earlier this year, in March, two CHS seniors Jaden Anderson, 17, and Damien King, 18, earned publishing contracts for their work in creating winning designs for the cover of “Dark Storm Rising,” and the logo for the complete six-book series.

Both the teachers and the publisher recognized the excellent learning experience for the students in Graphic Design. Iza has been given a contract with Three Ravens Publishing Company for his work and a chance to further his career in graphic design.
