Design Devices: Psychedelia

I don’t feel anything yet… Do you?

In celebration of April 19th, aka Bicycle Day, I’ve put together a collection of trippy, weird, and sorta-kinda psychedelic cover designs. Some were chosen for their content, others purely for how their designs made me feel. You can always explore the tag “trippy” to see more covers like these.

*If you’re able to provide any missing design credits, please write me at ineedabookcover.site@gmail.com or DM me @zoe-norvell.

Blog post cover image by the extraordinary Brian Blomerth. Be sure to check out his books Bicycle Day (2019), a Technicolor retelling of the discovery of LSD, and Mycelium Wassonii (2021), an account of “the lives and trips of R. Gordon and Valentina Wasson, the pioneering scientist couple responsible for popularizing the use of psychedelic mushrooms in the United States.” Both are published by Anthology Editions/Mexican Summer.
