La Boca on illustrating The Folio edition of Ubik

Oct 10, 2019 at 04:30 am by -gToon

Joining The Man in the High Castle and the tête-bêche edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? & A Scanner Darkly, Ubik is an unmissable Folio edition for fans of one of science fiction’s true masters.

Featuring a series of bold hypnotic illustrations by award-winning independent art studio La Boca, this volume is presented in a special die-cut slipcase that combines with the vibrant binding to confuse the eye.

Here, Scot Bendall - artist and co-founder of design studio La Boca - explains how they approached illustrating this book, one of the few Philip K. Dick books that have not been adapted for the screen. 'I wanted the images to have a glitchy, dream-like quality to them because in the book you're not altogether sure what is going on all of the time.'

The Folio Society produces beautifully crafted collector’s editions of the world’s greatest books, each with unique illustrations or specially researched photographs throughout. Find books you love at
