Don't judge a book by it's cover, eh?

Instead of posting my own artwork, I thought I'd take some time to celebrate some other book work. These are just a sampling of some of my current favorite children's book covers that sit on the shelf at home. Inside these books is some of the most beautiful artwork I have ever seen.

I love books.

  1. Fun post, Renee! What about judging a book by its spine? As oftentimes you have to do that in the bookstore (less-so online, I suppose).

  2. childrens books are so fascinating, i would really like to work on one someday, they make going to barnes and noble like going to a museum...but more fun because you actually can buy the artwork you like.
