judging by its cover

these amazing painted books are the work of mike stilkey, an american artist who paints onto the covers of books, vintage papers and record covers.  his work has been compared to that of weimar-era german expressionism and his melancholic characters and style have been described by some as capturing features of artists ranging from edward gorey to egon schiele.
