Puffin Chalks are a new series of classic children's books from Penguin's Puffin imprint, making charming use of chalk illustration and typography for their covers. The design is by Dana Tanamachi-Williams of Tanamachi Studio, with art direction by Deborah Kaplan and Kristin Logsdon. The first few titles are out now. Click to embiggen.

..with more to come later this year, although I don't have final cover images for those. Tanamachi-Williams has also put up time-lapse videos showing the creation of two of the covers. It's lovely seeing this work being done physically, not digitally.
