    1. Thanks, Jen!

      John Coulthart included this book series in a recent post on his blog. He credits John Alcorn for the cover art, and shows eight of the twelve book covers.

    2. I remember seeing these in supermarkets when I was young and liking the design. Looking at them now they feel very Push Pin.

    3. Totally feels like Push Pin, Mark!

      And thanks for finding the illustrator, Florian. 👍👍
