From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg
Here’s one of those kids favorites that I have yet to read, but this cover alone would make me pick up this book. Several of the staff have read it and raved about it. But that’s really not the reason for this post, it’s the blog from which I pulled this image. This is from Matt Roeser’s book design blog. He is a graphic designer in Boston, Massachusetts available to work on book covers for publishers, presses and individuals. For the past five years he’s helped make creative matter as Senior Designer of the talented team at Atomicdust. Most recently, he’s taken a position as Senior Designer at Candlewick Press.
Have a look and explore more of his concepts.
