Occasionally when I’m trawling through some reference material i will be stopped by an image. This often happens with typography, layout and general design but can also happen with illustration. In this case it was a single image of an old book cover – it had a lot going for it, an intense sci-fi illustration, really interesting type and more gradients than you could poke a stick at.

It was creepy, curious and satisfying to look at. This prompted further investigation and what i found was an absolute treasure trove of amazing book covers, posters and illustrations by German-Norwegian graphic designer/ illustrator and author – Peter Haars. Below is a bunch of covers he created for Publishing company Lanterne. Simply incredible stuff that has really stood the test of time.
