Ha! I have seen (and made fun of) this book on the shelf at my library. >.> (Our library is small and we have a general policy not to weed romances if they’re still circulating. I guess this one is still circulating.)

Puffin Chalks by Dana Tanamachi

Beautiful book covers created by Dana Tanamachi for Puffin Books, a division of Penguin Books for children. Every cover was created in a larger size with chalk then photographed and reproduced in a book format. If you want the books: Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz or Pippi Longstocking you can buy them on Amazon

adrifts:

“Classic children’s stories are timeless windows into the human psyche. With their embedded kernels of life wisdom and lessons about our desires they can teach us much about what it means to be human. Christian Jackson, a “gun for hire in the design industry,” has created a personal project that beautifully distills the elements of these iconic stories down to their essential elements… still enough to be easily recognizable.”
