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

    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 !

    love this.

  • Maw

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


  • Alex Threlfall
