Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis

Since I've seen this book on design*sponge some days ago, I've had a post-it on my screen remembering me to find out more about the author Colin Meloy and the illustrator Carson Ellis. They are married, that's in itself very nice. They live in Portland, Oregon, with their son Hank. Colin is the singer and songwriter for the DecemberistsListen here and here (this I like most). And here, surprising to me. Find out more about the book. 

Carson illustrated bestselling books like The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart and The Composer Is Dead by Lemony Snicket, get a copy herehere and here.
Of course she is the illustrator for the band as well.

These are from the albums The Hazards of Love and the early Castaways and Cutouts.
