For The Folio Society's special dual edition of two seminal Philip K Dick novels, 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' and 'A Scanner Darkly', Andrew Archer illustrated the cover and internal artwork for 'A Scanner Darkly'. Fellow Début Art represented artist Chris Skinner created the artwork for 'Androids'. Art direction from Raquel Leis Allion.
Substance D - the drug at the heart of the book - is derived from a blue flower, and so Andrew used this colour cue to add emphasis to the binding. For the internal illustrations, he focused on embracing the collision of the surreal and the real that occurs in the novel.
