I have this thing for pretty books. I don't know how to explain it, but sometimes I will choose a book based on the outside because it just draws me to it....these are going to have to be purchased...the colors, the font love love love!! Thanks for sharing.

They are stunning. Like pieces of art.
If we can judge these books by the cover, the content will be exquisite!
