#chibacity / "Escher-inspired" book covers for William Gibson’s Neuromancer trilogy.

Like a project right out of the Joshua Davis playbook:

William Gibson coined the term ‘cyberspace’ in his dystopian novel Neuromancer in 1984. In 2016 he invited the digital artist and programmer Daniel Brown to design new book covers for his Neuromancer trilogy. Brown wrote fractal mathematics software to create photographic, architectural, Escher-inspired arrangements that provide infinitely claustrophobic, coded settings for the visionary series.

All of the covers I’ve seen for the trilogy I’ve seen previously feature some kind of digital computer or cyberpunk imagery (like the intro scene of “The Internet” in the movie Johnny Mnemonic). I like Daniel’s alternative interpretation, especially the finished versions.
