1. I am nerdy and book covers showed that I had respect for the books. Duh.
2. I went to a public school in the South Bronx and was particularly scared of my teachers.
While my peers tended to like the New Kids on the Block covers, I gravitated towards the regular ol' brown paper ones. Mostly so I could draw the Ghostbusters' logo over and over again.
While browsing through beauty products on Target's site, I came across these awesome book covers by Book City Jackets.
I mean, seriously, how effing cool is this? And in looking at their site, this Brooklyn-based duo are making all sorts of covers that are beautiful and creative (the Kindle one cracks me up). I particularly like how they used the covers to accent their bookshelves.
Now, if only I could convince my sister to submit for their artists' series. That would just rock my world.
