Brief Encounters

• BookRiot has put together a small but significant gallery of “really cool” covers from Sherlock Holmes novels. I’m especially fond of Greek graphic designer Maria Papaefstathiou’s front for The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Very sharp-looking!

• Author Evan Lewis’ taste runs, instead, to versions of Red Harvest, Dashiell Hammett’s 1929 Continental Op novel.

• Mark Dery, a contributor to The Daily Beast, offers “the first installment of a series celebrating book cover art and design,” looking back at artist Richard M. Powers’ surrealistic science-fiction fronts of the 1950s. More, please ...

• And Retrospace has collected some of the weirdest foreign adult horror comic covers you’re ever likely to come across.
