Brooklyn-based graphic designer and letterer Dana Tanamachi, who is known for her gorgeous chalkboard typography, has worked for high profile clients like Google, Bloomingdale’s and Time magazine.

More recently, she teamed up with Puffin Books, the children’s division of Penguin Group, to create the covers of the publisher’s “Puffin Chalk” collection of classic children’s titles.

The result is a set of beautiful book covers that was originally drawn by hand on a chalkboard before being photographed for reproduction—the chalk art-style covers are visually striking and whimsical at the same time.

Watch a couple of behind-the-scenes videos below to find out how the designer created these playful and creative covers with colorful chalk.
