It's a 1984 reference! Groovy!Click for full image

Good Show Sir Art Direction: This cover has to be at the printers in 15 minutes. Just cut some pop stars out of Melody Maker and paint over the collage. And add a rocket — it’s supposed to be “science fiction”. Next time don’t smoke angel dust before you come to work.

Published 1971

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: KITTY! KITTY! Get off my keyboard! If you don’t get off this instant you are going on that cover in hell we’re getting done. Cause that’s where you belong… RIGHT! You’re going on… you are going on there… with Genghis Khan… in hell! That will teach you.

Anne’s Art Direction: It’s a book of short stories by one of the most lyrical authors in the universe? I know, we’ll put a ripped blond naked guy on the front with something or other covering his nibbits. How about a tiger head? That sends the right sort of message, don’t you think? Then we’ll surround him with some dobermans for good measure. To top it off, we definitely need three different fonts but also distract everyone with an aurora border.
