I am drooling over this new edition of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, illustrated by Sam Weber! It comes out in December.
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.
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!

Holy cow, these are killing me…amazing!!!
love the cover, so restrained in a good way. those glasses are going to stare down a lot of new readers in the bookstores…
WOW!!!!!!! They are amazing! Especially the shell and the smoke one! Wow!
that’s amazing! my english class just started reading this book. I’m on chapter 6! <33
yer, this would make english A-levels a million times better
WOW. That’s impressive!
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 !
What?? these are so perfect! perfect for the book, but they are also ethereal on their own. wow.
THIS BOOK IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!
I can’t wait to get my hands on this book. An all time favourite. Alex
I happy to see the power of this book is still inspiring!
Nice. Simon is impressive!
