Grammasite Frontispiece for Lost in a Good Book (USA)
The US Penguin full-colour frontispiece illustration for Lost in a Good Book. Differs from the UK version in that the travelling element into the book is explored - in the background you can see The Great Library and the prison hulk itself is half in and half out of the book. Caption below the picture reads:
'It's a grammasite,' explained Miss Havisham, 'a parasitic life form that lives inside books.'
