Michael Crichton Book Covers

Pavel Frčka has created a wonderful web page showing the first edition covers of all of Michael Crichton’s books, including the ones Crichton wrote under pseudonyms. It also shows the cover for the highly anticipated posthumous novel, Pirate Latitudes.

I must note that the cover for Jasper Johns is for the 1977 edition, while Crichton’s official website has the cover for the 1994 edition.

In addition, Pavel Frčka has also created a website showing the Czech edition book covers of Crichton’s works. Crichton’s website does show international covers for The Lost World and The Andromeda Strain. Examining the international covers not only reveals something about the books, but perhaps something about the different cultures as well.
