TTT: Covers Freebie


 


Top Ten Tuesday is a Meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish  This week's Top Ten is a cover themed freebie, so anything to do with covers.  You may or may not know that covers are one of my favorite things about books, I could really just surround myself with the artwork of book covers on my walls.  For this week I've selected some covers by two of my favorite illustrators, Iacapo Bruno and Kazu Kibuishi (with links to their websites).  



1.  Kazu Kibuishi illustrated the covers for The box set of Harry Potter and is the author of the graphic novel Amulet.  I love how the spines form an image and  The Sorcerer's Stone is my favorite of his covers.

2.  Iacapo Bruno illustrated some of my favorite books.  The illustrations and sketches on his blog are so beautiful, especially the full book jacket covers.  This is only a small sample of some of his covers.

  4. I didn't realize that the HP box set and the Amulet series were done by the same illustrator. Beautiful work! I do get pulled into books by their covers, even though I try not to! :)
