I’ve already extolled the virtues of Spanish artist Nekro, responsible for the Tor cover. But how did the UK edition cover come about?
Emma Barnes, head honcho at Snowbooks, takes a great personal interest herself in cover design, and she’s shared some of the disparate elements that came together to make the astonishing end product.

Should you want to hold this beautiful beast in your own paws, you can get Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl at all good retailers including, now, Amazon.co.uk.
