Venebles did a similar thing for the cover of The Water Clock, a crime novel. As he says, the "random almost pre-historic appearance" of the distortion from the ice is very pleasing to the eye.

I should have posted this with the other Cat's Cradle covers in the last post: it's certainly my favourite take on Vonnegut's best apocalyptic novel. Done for the Essential Penguin line in 1999, it was photographed by Mike Venebles. He froze the cover text, and then took the shots through the ice.
