Leanne Shapton is an artist, illustrator, writer and publisher. She designed one of my favorite covers of this year, so I was happy to learn that she doesn't always wait for a commission to create them. These charming "wooden books" are wood blocks hand-painted with imaginary covers in her loose, colorful style. The books are available at John Derian in NYC and Lutyens & Rubinstein in London, but they will go "out of print", so don't dawdle.

(Leanne kindly sent me these images, and you can see more of them here.)
