The Eye of the Queen is the debut novel by science fiction writer Phillip Mann (1942–2022). First published by Gollancz in the UK in 1982, this is the book jacket for the first American edition, by Arbor House in 1983.

Once more, Loretta Trezzo demonstrates her skills both in illustration and typography. The enigmatic image depicts a hand in the sky, floating above or emerging from a volcano, with an eyeless human head lying in the foreground. The title is presented in Countdown, with condensed proportions, custom small caps, and a hyper-extended Q tail. A spur was added to N, for better legibility. Mann’s name is set in caps from Harry.
