How amazing is this artwork? It was created by Noah Hayes, who’s studying art and design at college. Noah created some art based on The Montmaray Journals for his visual development class and I first became aware of it when I saw these great book cover designs:

Thanks to Noah for allowing me to share these images. You can find them all at Noah’s Tumblr.
