Clever book covers

This is the Croatian cover for Jo Walton's Among Others. I'm delighted by the image because part of the story is about the main character and her dead twin sister, but the sister isn't a conventional ghost. I'd have to reread the book to think clearly about how the sister is different from a typical ghost.

The only other cover I've seen which has delighted me in this way was a Dover edition of Stapledon's Last and First Men and Star Maker-- the book has a lot about group minds, so a coral is rather appropriate.*

Any recommendations for ingenious cover images?

*When I looked this up, I found that there is also an edition with the coral in turquoise, which shows up better than the dark blue.
