    Intense.

  • Very striking. Interesting though how the book cover is markedly different from the illustrations inside. Guess the contrast will be a positive one.

  • Maya

    Wow! I love his work, and these are just delicious. One of my favourite books, too.

  • Maya

    I still can’t get over these. It’s so rare that someone is able to capture an essence of what you feel about a piece of fiction and illustrate it so beautifully.

  • ah man that first images is INTENSE!

    inspiring talent.

    Sam Weber has blown up this last week! He’s everywhere, and deserves to be. His skill and style is just amazing. I’m just a little jealous myself. .

  • Relooking at them I’m still quite thrilled. But the second illustration starts to degrade a bit. I’m not sure whether it’s the hair, the particles or the pigs head – or the combination. It looks more like a cover of a Dr. Frank pulp-novel. The rest are staggering.

  • Beautiful and disturbing. Perfect for the book.

  • Awesome illustrations !!
    These illustrations retranscribe a faithful harmony to the book too !

  • Champagne

    kick.

    ass.

    love this.

  • Maw

    What?? these are so perfect! perfect for the book, but they are also ethereal on their own. wow.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
