Alejandro Colucci – Designer

Award-Winning Illustrator / Book Cover Artist focused on fantasy, horror and historical. Since 2003 working for major Publishers worldwide.


I'm an Award-Winning Illustrator and Book Cover Artist focused on fantasy, horror, dystopian fiction, and historical subjects.

Since 2003 I created well over one thousand illustrations -mainly for book covers- commissioned by major Publishers around the globe for authors such as Anne Rice, Robin Hobb, Joe Abercrombie, Isaac Asimov, Mario Puzo, H.G. Wells, Ursula K. Le Guin, Andrzej Sapkowski, William Gibson, Steven Erikson, Robert Louis Stevenson, and J.G. Ballard, to name just a few.

In recent years I've been working on illustrated books such as the classic gothic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson: "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" and several tales by Edgar Allan Poe, Sheridan Le Fanu, and Théophile Gautier. And especially on the illustrated and deluxe edition of A. Sapkowski's "The Witcher".

In 2021 I illustrated a special new edition of Joe Abercrombie's "The Blade Itself".

In 2022 I fully illustrated the classic "The Worm Ouroboros" by E. R. Eddison, a new edition to be published soon.

Also, I worked on a couple of Assassin's Creed book covers.

This year I'm proud to be working on a very special project: Frankenstein. A truly classic of gothic literature, by Mary Shelley. New illustrated edition.


"Alejandro's powerful illustrations are the finest. I am proud that he has done several book covers for my novels. He is a true artist."

"I love them. I think they are the best and most beautiful illustrations that have ever appeared in any of my books, whatever the language and country have been published"

“Over the years, I’ve been privileged to see my characters portrayed by many fine artists, from Michael Whelan to John Howe. Alejandro has joined that esteemed group. A master of expression and detail, his visions of my characters look ready to step off the page.”

Being new to cover design I'm glad I found Alejandro. He crystallised the fuzzy picture in my minds eye into a design that captured the essence of it. I'm so pleased with it. And it was done quickly and without fuss. I could not recommend him more.

Alejandro is not only talented, he is great to work with. The centuries-old sentiment that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover might have some truth, but the advantage is huge when you have a great cover.
