Good Cover Art

I've previously written a couple posts making fun of terrible cover art (here and here).  While hilariously bad cover art is worth noting, we should also remember good cover art.  One of my favorite particular pieces of cover art was from the Dell paperback edition of Kurt Vonnegut's Mother Night.

A bizarre cover that successfully incorporates a lot of detail from the book.  Unfortunately, the artist wasn't credited and for a long time I was unable to find out who it was.  It turned out though, that I had other books with his cover art.

The artist is Don Ivan Punchatz, and he's done some very clever, weird, and awesome covers:

Another 'necessary' sequel

A very necessary sequel

And my personal favorite:

A parody of Rembrandt's The Anatomy Lesson
