What The? #12

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

Not Before Time by John Brunner
1968 – Four Square Books
Cover art possibly by Don Ivan Punchatz

Really? A man carrying a harpoon gun runs down a hill of mouths, presumably to escape from the lady at the top wearing a full length evening dress and sporting a strange squid-like appendage instead of a left arm. I think it’s time for me to consider putting an end to this series soon, it’s giving me such strange dreams at night.

    Brilliant. Makes my own dreams seem relatively normal…

      Thanks for the comment Bernie, it’s certainly not a run of the mill cover. I have one more left in this series due for next week sometime, see what make of that! xx
