Heartcrested skull and psychedelic colours…

… define the cover of Four For the Future.

Psychedelic lines revolve around a human skull, from which heartlike growths protrude, on the cover of Four For the Future, a collection of short stories, centred on themes of sacrifice and redemption. It contains stories by Brian Aldiss, Poul Anderson, James Blish och Harry Harrisson. This cover is almost nauseating, with the confusing lines disturbing the eye. Somehow it is still a captivating image, with the strong symbols of life and death in the form of the skull and the heart.
