One of the things that tends to get people riled up on the Internet these days is book covers. There always seems to be some new source of outrage, often with good cause. But crap or inappropriate covers are nothing new. John Coulthart has put up an excellent post looking at the history of covers from M. John Harrison’s Viriconium books. Some of them are really nice pieces of art, but are totally inappropriate for the content. John promises a follow-up post suggesting avenues for exploration with regard to Viriconium cover art. I’m looking forward to it.
