Will of A Journey Round My Skull directed my attention to the website of book designer and illustrator (and composer) Mick Wiggins, who is responsible for the covers of the Neville Shute reissues coming soon for Vintage Classics--I had been wondering who had done them.
Wiggins has done a lot of other lovely work, including the complete John Steinbeck from Penguin Classics US...
..as well Gerald Durrell's backlist...
..and various other works.
When visiting his site, you also have to watch the disturbing short animated film from which this image comes, 'The Strange Tale of Dieter Talfdum, County Taxonomist, on the Day of an Unusual Geomagnetic Event'.
I've got an interview with Mr Wiggins coming up soon.
