There are some pretty terrible covers out there for Jones’s books, like my hardback of Conrad’s Fate, which is just dull. Having copies issued by several publishers, of course, means that the cover art is pretty varied.
This cover of the Puffin edition (1980 reprint) of Charmed Life, is quite different to the others. The illustrator’s name is hidden by an unremoveable sticker, but is probably Graham Humphreys.
I’ve never really thought that Chrestomanci had a moustache, but his outfit is very 1970s!
Or there’s this rather nice monochrome cover for The Game, which fits in well with its background theme of the night sky’s planets and comets, and the tangled web of family which bind all the characters.

But I think my favourite might be this one for Archer’s Goon, by illustrator Paul Hess. I love the way the Goon is shown with his enormously long legs, and Howard and Awful looking horrified…
