Designer Profile: Jim Tierney

I recently tackled a project that required me to do extensive research on the art of book design and jacket art (which I plan to feature really soon!) for an invitation I was working on. While I was researching different designers and styles, I stumbled upon the work of Jim Tierney who studies illustration at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He has some of the prettiest and quirkiest book cover designs I have seen! I have highlighted some of my favorites...

Aren't they lovely and so unbelievably unique? I couldn't help but think that this is a modern day interpretation of the classic Hetzel Jules Verne collector's editions that have become priceless.
