Spiders of Allah

spidersofallah.jpgI recently had the opportunity to illustrate the cover of Spiders of Allah, by journalist James Hider. The book is a first hand account of his experiences as a journalist in the Middle East. What a great book – satiric, sad, ironic, and all too honest. I learned many things by reading this book, not only about the Middle East but about the United States as well. I recommend it highly. The US edition will be released by St. Martin’s Press on June 23. You can pre-order it from Amazon.com  HERE. Spiders of Allah is Mr. Hider’s first book – congratulations! You can read the book review in Time magazine HERE.

    Wow, Ron, evocative cover, beautiful. This guy was interviewed on the local NPR outlet up here. Sounded like an above-average book on a tough subject.
