I commissioned this illustration from Steven Wilson after I received the brief for this new book by controversial American author Nicholson Baker. My first thought when I received the brief was of Alan Aldridge's poster for 'Chelsea Girls' so I wanted that feel, but using very bold colours. I chose Steven Wilson for the project when I read somewhere that he was a big fan of Alan Aldridge and he just seemed to have the right look and bold colour palette for this book cover illustration.
