Lord of the Flies, (1980), cover art

A prominent illustrator for books and national magazines, Storey was selected to create a new cover for the 1980 reissue of William Golding’s best-selling novel, Lord of the Flies. The result was Storey’s provocative painting of a young boy who seems at once both vulnerable and fierce. The cover is now counted as one of the artist’s most celebrated works.
