I’ve posted a few covers for China Mieville’s The City and The City, and they’ve been top quality each time. This one, the UK paperback release, is clearly targeting a non-Fantasy audience, as it should, given the crime/thriller/fantasy crossover nature of the novel, but it’s a striking image nonetheless (especially in person; I just recieved a copy). It perfectly captures the tone of the novel. My only gripe is that I’d like to have seen the two structures bordering the figure look slightly different from one another, given the main conceit of the novel.

    I like it but I still think I like the US HC one better.
