Here are some intensely beautiful illustrations by Sam Weber for the new illustrated edition of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. Excellent compositions where each one stands alone, just look at the color palette of the first and third. Here’s a little piece written by Weber regarding the project:

“Using contemporary illustration to accompany a much loved classic was an exciting challenge, made more so by the active involvement of the Golding Estate. Lord of The Flies is one of my favourite novels, and in many regards this opportunity was a true dream job.”

These pieces are the tip of the iceberg in terms of Sam’s portfolio. Swing over to Sam Weber’s website for more of his work.
