The Shape of Things to Come, paperback and hardcover

I'm hoping someone can identify the artwork used on this jacket. It's got a strong Utopian feel, doesn't it?

UPDATE: A reader kindly comments: "It's an illustration from Gulliver's Travels (not sure which edition), from the chapter in which Gulliver sees the flying island of Laputa." Thanks!

The new paperback:


Here is the hardcover design from almost exactly a year ago:

Absolutely, positively hate the typography on the softcover edition. It looks like the sort of stuff they put on discount non-fiction paperbacks in the 70s.

I have this book and looking at it is always an inspiration to me. Sahre's work is so pure and full of meaning. Not sure about your comment on the type treatment. My only comment against the piece is that I wish Paul did the insides of the book as well...

I was commenting on the Flag cover. The one with the discoverer looking at the floating island is interesting, but I don't see it's effectiveness and purity/simplicity of message as I do with Paul's flag cover.

A rare example of completely different paperback and hardback covers that work equally well.

...but confuse you that they are related in anyway whatsoever.

I prefer the hardcover. The flag is absolutely luscious but I must admit the type needed to have its font size jumbled up a little. The one-size type looks too much like ad blurb. Or a poem.
