The cover page and page banners of this website feature reformatted and modified images from Nicos Philippou's collection of polaroid snapshots SHARQI, with the photographer's permission. The brutal, off-kilter landscapes reminded me of home. For more information on SHARQI, click here.
The banner image for MONTCRIEF was taken by photographer Patti Kuche whose rambles through the Bronx captured in light and serendipity exactly what I was trying to put into words. Visit her at: Nylon Daze.
The image of astronomer Clyde Tombaugh I used for HUBBLE isn't copyrighted. In fairness to Tombaugh's memory, Tombaugh was likely a more astute and significant figure than is suggested in the novel and that photo is probably not "the only one where Tombaugh isn't grinning like an ape."
I figured the artist whose photo of "rodent bones in vial" I used for BUDGE would have been easy to track down on Etsy or Pinterest, but it seems that specific image of vialed rodent bones has gone missing. Maybe the vial was sold.
The melancholy bar scene illustrating A PENNY FOR THE DEAD MAN was taken by Czech photographer Jaroslav Kučera in 1999. "Žižkov, Pub U Pytlíčků" captures Žižkov in the death throes of its golden age of seediness. By the time I got there, there weren't many drinking establishments left where you could find shirtless women leaning on bars.
The Dillo cover image is by Marissa Rocke, whose Modern American Landscapes: Road Kill series was selected to appear in the (M)otion series in Prague.
