What The? #9

An occasional series of book covers whose outlandish design evokes bafflement and confusion in equal measure.

I Sing The Body Electric by Ray Bradbury

1972 – Corgi
Cover art not credited

This very odd cover clearly features a heavily rouged glam rock centaur with a rather natty feather-cut hairstyle flexing his biceps, his forearms transmogrifying into miniature bicep flexing glam rock figures. I think I’m slowly losing the plot here.

    This is an edition I owned. It always looked like Rocky fro the Rocky Horror
    Picture show.

    The missing touch is a set of smaller figures on the smaller figures and so on… A sort of fractal effect.

      It is very Rocky Horror isn’t it. I love your suggestion about the infinite figures too, a glam rock fractal centaur episode if you will.
