Nova by Samuel R. Delany - Centipede Press limited edition

Updated: Jan 8, 2023

This is one of those books I haven't read yet, but made it to the top of my TBR now that it is in hand. Elric of Melniboné by CP introduced me to Piotr Jablonski and I saw his art for this edition of Nova several years ago when looking for prints of the Elric art. Already then I knew this release was gonna be a home run for me. Especially the Lorq von Ray piece is very evocative and has captivated me ever since. Standing on a space station or spaceship, staring into the vastness of space through this huge window that dwarfs the character truly hit home with me. Might be the dreamer in me that would love to live in an era of human space exploration, but knows that will not be in our lifetimes. So I live that dream through Delany's science fiction and Jablonski's art.

Can't wait to get started. It's one of those books that I will read by means of this limited edition to enhance the experience. The size Jerad uses for his top tier books accommodates this very well. I have to finish A Desolation Called Peace and The Tide Child trilogy before I dive into this, but I can hardly wait. Here is my take on the book with my camera. Enjoy. Stay healthy, keep reading.
