Here’s my cover for the new SF Masterworks edition of Limbo by Bernard Wolfe, to be published by Gollancz.  The book won’t be out till April next year, but is available for pre-order now.

Originally we decided to try a more graphical approach and have the map on a solid white background (I also tried a few other colour variations) but afterwards the designer and editor asked for some distressed textures to be added around the edges of the image.  I also originally created the figure and map straight on, but extended the image beyond the edges of the cover to allow for the image to be tilted in the layout, which was what was settled on in the final design.
