It was at a very young age that I can remember my mom reading me novels. The big thick ones, like Heidi and Little Women, and Little House The Prairie. I remember being completely transported to far away worlds. It was a delight.
It didn't take long for me to start devouring these books on my own - after all, I'd become quite the speed reader, and managed to eat up chapters much faster than my mother could read them aloud.
So when I stumbled across these beautiful book covers, illustrated and art directed by David Pearson, I was once again transported.
Can you imagine having a whole library full of these beautiful covers?
