Today I got an email from Antonello Silverini, the artist who did the cover for the Italian version of Pandemonium now available from the publishing house Fanucci Editore– and the cover is quite cool. He went for the pure Americana at the heart of the book, which is all about pop culture, comic books, and science fiction going back to the 40′s, and the cover includes all kinds of “clues” and references from the book. I love it.
Check out Antonello’s website, antonellosilverini.com for his portfolio. He does very interesting things with photos and collage and text, and you know that he’s pays special attention to the content of the novels he’s illustrating, looking through the book for the right image to illustrate. You MUST check out his series of Philip K Dick covers. His Man in the High Castle particularly knocks me out.
