The Art of Jessica Hische

I admit it—I’m guilty of judging books by their covers.  I am a sucker for a beautifully designed book jacket.  So, I’m starting a new column, The Art of…, to feature book designers and their amazing artwork.

First up is Jessica Hische.  I’ve long been a fan of hers.  Her lettering is gorgeous and has graced not just book jackets, but advertising campaigns, logos, wine labels, and even USPS first class stamps.

Here are some of my favorites.  Please visit her website for even more inspiration.
