Well, believe it or not Good Show Sir will be two years old today! And boy do we have a strange surprise for you all. We’ve gathered some of the best covers from over the past two years and made them into two separate montages of epicness! Epicness is a word, right?

Just want to thank everyone who has helped out, sent covers in and commented over our time here. Also a very special thanks to Sophaloaf for putting together our video collections!

It’s great to have made a place where people can come and enjoy these amazing pieces of art that grace our book covers, with a bit of laughter! I hope Good Show Sir has helped people appreciate their covers that little bit more and possibly notice great looks of confusion on public transport while reading one.

Firstly, we have our Quantum Collection – Quantum you ask? Hopefully the sound track will help you realise why.

Secondly, where would we be without the HUNKS of Sci-Fi and Fantasy? Watch, if you are ready!

Brain Face wasn't exactly popular on CBEEBIES.Click for full image

Art Direction: A giant circular brain, with eyes I might add, in some sort of… drill vice! There’s no way it could look like a giant eyed cookie or strange bondage moon face. Right?

Dorian’s Art Direction: Kali, eh?  Goddess of death and destruction?  It’s not exactly…well, friendly, now is it?  I tell you what.  Make the cover pink. Bright pink.  That’ll be more…cosy, like.

Art Direction: You know what I see this book about a clairvoyant having visions of murders to be compared to? The movie Fame! So we’ll have the title, with that brilliant font, above something like a giant bat and a shadowy figure onlooking. Can’t you just feel the symbolism?
