6) Pile: Petals from St. Klaed's computer, by Brian Aldiss, illustrated by Mike Wilks

A rather peculiar conjunction of Aldiss (writing in verse for once) and Wilks (later famous for The Ultimate Alphabet) supplying a superb depiction of the crazed architecture of the city of Pile (and its mirror image Elip), plus the power-hungry prince Scart. Aldiss fan though I am, the gorgeous illustrations score over the written narrative. My copy had a 1979 Worldcon souvenir bookplate signed by both Aldiss and Wilks; I got it at the David Stewart memorial auction last weekend.
