judge a book by the cover?

i most certainly do when it comes to design and typography.

these minimalist covers of classic children’s books by chicago graphic designer Christian Jackson are to die for. i love the dark hues and grim approach to the depiction of childhood whimsical stories. so many classic fairytales have a dark side, jackson’s attention to this in the tone of the cover is unique and compelling.
