They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But when book covers look this good, well, it’s hard not to…
1. Till T (For Tea) by Suzanne Brøgger. Cover design by Lotta Kühlhorn.
We love Stockholm-based Graphic Designer Lotta Kühlhorn’s beautiful bold patterns that adorn tea towels, cutting boards, trays and even napkins. Now her stunning designs are being applied to books too.
2. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Cover design by Jillian Tamaki.
Jillian hand sewed limited edition covers of 3 classics for Penguin Books, including The Secret Garden, Emma and Black Beauty. The tactile texture of the embroidery is absolutely beautiful.
3. The Forest Feast by Erin Gleeson. Cover design by Erin Gleeson.
Artist and professional food photographer Erin Gleeson began her blog, The Forest Feast, after she left New York City and moved into a tiny cabin in a Californian forest in order to be closer to nature. Here, she shares her passion for creating vegetarian food. Her book, of the same name, is a mouth watering treasure to behold, which draws you in from the cover alone. Inside the book are vibrant photographs, complemented by Erin’s own fanciful watercolour illustrations and hand lettering.
4. Heidi by Johanna Spyri. Cover design by Rifle Paper Co.
Anna Rifle Bond, of whimsical stationary brand Rifle Paper Co. has illustrated some of our favourite children’s books for Puffin in Bloom. We’ll be re-reading all of them.
Anna Bond recently announced that she has also designed the cover of a 150th anniversary edition of Alice in Wonderland, which will include over 60 colour illustrations inside and will be released by Puffin Books on November 3rd..
Eeek! We can’t wait.
