A couple more scans of paperback covers from my collection.
Bruce Pennington is a great artist – his book of paintings Ultraterraneum is full of fabulous and haunting images. He’s probably best known for his covers for Gene Wolfe novels such as Shadow of the Torturer and Frank Herbert’s Dune trilogy. He was also the (mystery) artist for my favourite Technicolor Time Machine cover, featured back in the early days of this blog. His cover for this Rat book is dramatic – it would make me pick up the book – but doesn’t really have much connection to the story as far as I can see.
This is another of the Sphere (UK) covers by the late, great Peter Elson. Have I mentioned before that I like his Rat covers?
