I've talked about cover work on Chester Himes before, when Pegasus rereleased two of his novels. In May this year, five of his books are being put out as Penguin Modern Classics. I have four of the covers, and they're marvellous: stark, violent black-and-white pictures by Aaron Robinson.
Robinson has Penguined before, providing the excellent cover paintings for the most recent repackaging of D. H. Lawrence...
..and one of whose covers was stolen by an ebook imprint, as detailed here.
For a different approach to Lawrence, see here.
And in an unrelated note, if you haven't played the Great Gatsby 8-bit videogame yet, you must!
