Cover Art - "Zoo City" by Lauren Beukes

Angry Robot released the cover for Zoo City  by Lauren Beukes (May 2010 in UK/Aus, June 2010 in US/Rest of world) which is a follow-up to Moxyland  (1 July, 2009 in UK/Aus and May 2010 in US/Rest of world).

Artist John Picacio says the author describes the book as follows -
ZOO CITY as an urban fantasy — “a muti noir set in a re-imagined Johannesburg. It’s the story of a girl with a sloth on her back, a dirty 419 habit and the magical ability to find lost things who gets drawn into a case to find a missing pop star.


  1. woah, the double-face things blending the eyes is so cool!

  2. Ninefly John Picacio does amazing work and this sounds like a very unusual book deserving of an offbeat cover.
