Favorite book cover of the week: A Wrinkle in Time

There are certain books from my childhood reading list that will remain lifelong favorites. One such book is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. While perusing the internet for pretty book covers, I came across this illustrated cover from the 1971 Puffin edition. Can't you just feel the magic? I love all of the colors, different mark-making techniques, and the hand-drawn title. It looks like the artist, Antony Maitland, used a mix of pastels and watercolors. Two of my favorite mediums!
