Book cover of the week
The book which the Roman Polanski film was based on, this creepy Magritte style cover (you know the one with the man in the bowler hat and suit with an apple floating in front of his face) was done by the author himself Roland Topor. Topor was a French illustrator, writer, painter and filmmaker known for his surreal imagery who also made the brilliant animation Fantastic Planet alongside Rene Laloux.
This new edition of the book features a hefty introduction, some short stories and original artwork by Topor, and an essay on the Polanski film.
