Favorite Book Cover of the Week - The Mysterious Stranger by Mark Twain, illustrations by Jim Tierney


I love illustrated book covers. There is something old fashioned yet refreshing about a cover illustration with hand-drawn text to match. I discovered Jim Tierney through a post about his illustrations at the Rifle Paper Co. blog. I thrilled to see more of his work on his portfolio site: www.jimtierneyart.com. Jim is a native Pennsylvanian and studied illustration at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Does anyone know where one can buy this book? I can see the Penguin logo but can't find it online. I suppose I could ask Jim!
