Fabulous book cover illustrations by Chris Buzelli


Chris Buzelli has recently finished (and is now able to post) two wonderful illustrations for book covers. The first, "The Door In the Forest", is a mysterious fantasy that takes place on a magical island surrounded by an impenetrable swamp full of poisonous snakes, secret doorways and soldiers.
The second book, "One Day and One Amazing Morning on Orange Street", is a heartwarming story that weaves the stories of the community and their secrets buried beneath the town's orange tree.
