  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. 👍👍
