Spiderwick Anniversary Covers Revealed

January 26, 2013

Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive reveal of the redesigned jackets for the first five books in The Spiderwick Chronicles.

You may remember following along in my process last fall as I returned to rendering Jared, Simon and Mallory Grace along with some favorite fairy folk. This May, the books will be re-released in a larger format hardcover edition as well as paperback for the first time.


BTW, the yellow seen in this jpeg will be printed as gold foil (as seen below). You can see all five of the new covers on Entertainment Weekly’s site, here.


And speaking of Entertainment Weekly, I did a quick editorial illustration for their new geek blog, CapeTown, celebrating a favorite director of mine who is dashing off to a galaxy far, far away. Enjoy!

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
