From The Library Of The Unsubscriber No.14, Psychedelic Covers

Last week I wrote about books which had progressive, experimentally minded covers (here) and chose ’Shapes And Symbols’ as my opening article on this subject. This week I’m moving deep into the psychedelic underground to present five covers which may well expand your mind, rearrange your chakras and then go and ruin everything by playing a bloody tambourine!

Here’s the latest batch of cosmically inclined goodies, feel free to share your thoughts.

    I knew when I saw the title to your post I was gonna love it! The first one is my favorite (Moons of Triopus) – makes me itch to get out my colored pencils and draw – but the cover for Moonbeast is most intriguing.

      Glad you liked this one Lin, Triopus does make you want to sit down and indulge in a little colouring in doesn’t it!
