Jim Holloway‘s covers for the the 3 books in the Paranoia 1st edition are pure gold. In a game where literally everybody is out to get you, Holloway interlinked each of the covers.

It’s like Rock-Paper-Scissors. Their subjects each only have a portion of the whole picture, and all are monitoring somebody else. A fight is only moments away.

Easily one of my favorite RPG artists, Holloway was prolific in the old school days of the hobby. I’ve profiled his work before.
