Who's Got The Better Art Department?

Riffs on Michaelangelo's painting on the roof of the Sistine Chapel are common, and, as it happens one of my favorite nonfiction authors, Frans de Waal, has just gotten one on the cover of his latest book, Primates and Philosophers: How Morality Evolved, published by Princeton University Press.

But I think Tor Books did a much nicer job with its riff on the same thing for the cover of my Hugo-nominated novel Calculating God.

Tor's art director is the wonderful Irene Gallo, and the cover for my book was executed by Drive Communications.

Yours is definitely the better cover. PRIMATES AND PHILOSOPHERS certainly looks interesting too though. I love that title.

There's an interesting discussion going on over at Peter Watt's blog on a related topic. Altruism.
