“So as not to compete with Vinny’s I went as graphic as possible for this cover. Below are some of my rough mockups, some of which taking the idea of living inside a preservation dome a bit more literally than others. I’m glad this version was chosen too, the others where probably a bit obvious.” — Pye Parr View mockups by Parr
