Inspired by… Karl James Mountford

Today I bring inspiration by way of Karl James Mountford, a German illustrator who describes his work as, “‘visually edible’, sometimes witty, sometimes odd but always full of gusto.”  I was particularly drawn to his book cover illustration, featured below. Enjoy!

Inspired by… Matt Dorfman

Today I’m sharing the work of Matt Dorfman–illustrator, designer, and currently art director at The New York Times. I discovered Matt’s work from a book cover image I came across on Pinterest, (for those of you who follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed my obsession with book covers…). So, in honor of a well-designed book cover, I’m sharing some of his below! Be sure to check out the his site to view his other work, particularly his editorial work. 👌🏻
