Boyd's Atwoods

Having been rude about Margaret Atwood recently, I should point out that the current Vintage UK editions of her books are absolutely gorgeous: they use paper-cutut artwork and illustrations by Florence Boyd.






Apologies for the gap between posts, by the way: I had a nice big one on the tedium and lack of originality in modern fantasy novel covers, which boiled them all down to 3 categories (bloke with sword, chick with dogs, flying blob in the sky), and then Blogger ate it, and it was all too boring for me to redo. So, basically, modern fantasy covers suck.

The Handmaid's Tale one is particularly nice. Considerably better rendered here visually than the actual prose, in my opinion.
