Machine Man

The internet is such a huge space, and yet it seems to get smaller each day. For example, I saw this great post on the Vintage & Anchor blog about Max Barry's upcoming book "Machine Man". Apparently the publisher gave him permission to have Reddit users vote on the cover design, which is super rare and also super awesome.

The crazy "it's a small world after all" part is that three of the covers (1 & 2 & 5) were designed by Matt Roeser, who I interviewed earlier this week. I love pixel art and think Matt did a great job using it on the first cover:
I also really enjoy cover 3 but I think it would have been better to have illustrated knuts, bolts and legs instead of actual pictures cut out:

Quite honestly, the only covers I'm not crazy about are 4 & 6 but I would be happy to see the rest in print. In fact, I'm having a hard time picking a favorite. If you're interested you should head over to Reddit and let Max know which cover you'd like to see on shelves.

#4 is like a knock-off Klosterman cover and Klosterman's covers routinely suck.
