China Mieville Cover Gallery

China Mieville is a multiple award-winning author of fantasy novels. See his Wikipedia entry for more background. The beautiful artwork for his Perdido Street Station and The Scar is by Les Edwards, who used the pseudonym Edward Miller to break out in a more painterly direction and produce covers for books he would probably not have been otherwise considered for. The designed covers are nice — Crush have also done some very nice Agatha Christie covers and the latest redesign of Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers series — but they're not a patch of the Miller painted covers.
