An occasional series of book covers whose outlandish design evokes bafflement and confusion in equal measure.
The Stlll, Small Voice Of Trumpets by Lloyd Biggle Jr.
This version published in 1975 by Sphere
Cover artist is Patrick Woodroffe
This cover represents a seminal “What the?” moment. An army of crawling hands, their wrists becoming flowers which open to reveal another hand. Their leader is also rather delicately holding a tiny trumpet. I truly don’t know what to make of this cover or work out what was going through Patrick Woodroffe’s mind when he painted it?
