William Gibson. Neuromancer. West Bloomfield, Michigan: Phantasia Press, 1986. Pictorial dust jacket.

Note the kinetic, and high-information painting by Barclay Shaw for the dust jacket: the scene is neon post-Bowie noir, full of urban menace and suggestion, with semiotic teasers and colored geometries. On this back panel, a young woman with artificial eyes leans against a pay phone.

The dust jacket is not the text but the context of the book. Bibliography, like science fiction, as close observation of the present.

No. 51.
