Re: Your favorite book designs?

Also this wonderful embossed hb from Félix Labisse's UK biography.



This has been posted on another part of this forum, but I wrote a piece around it and a few other nice bits of broadly 'horror' design — including Malpertuis and the Parker ouija board — here, if anyone didn't see it.

Re: Your favorite book designs?

The cover for Darkness Visible uses a painting from the Australian artist Russell Drysdale which fits in perfectly with a rather hallucinatory passage from the book, but I thought some of his other works worth sharing too -- swerving off-topic massively.

Desert Children (1958)



The Rabbiters (1947)
