Great Covers Of Our Time

Reading & Writing

Well, I’ve not always added to the roster of cool covers. This alarming illustration by the rather wonderful artist Les Edwards was my very first book cover, and is enough to send a child under a table. The original artwork was taken down by a relative who felt too disturbed to look at it, and is now in a cupboard somewhere. Are there still any startling book covers out there? Recommendations, please!

    There’s not many covers I can think of lately that are shocking, but I think the cover for Graven Image written by Ray Garton was certainly one that could offend, and is pretty creepy
