Wizard of Oz Book Covers

Friday, May 7, 2010

Jessica Hische, the artist behind the Daily Drop Caps I'm using for the Alphabet Series, recently taught a class at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She assigned the students one project with several components: book cover design and endpapers, title page, and bookplate for a special edition novelization of The Wizard of Oz. Here are a few they came up with, don't you just love creative people?
