The Spiderwick Chronicles
by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black
These books are beautiful. The story is great, but more than that, the books are beautiful. I love the font they used, the illustrations, the cover art. This is the feel I want to have for my books. As soon as someone picks it up, I want them to think, "This is beautiful!"
(Oh, and the movie made based on the books did a great job of capturing the essence of the story.)
