The second half of the 1980s saw eight John Wyndham titles reprinted with cover illustrations by Mark Salwowski, who had returned to England after 20 years in Australia (his family had emigrated in 1964). The commission to do the covers came via the London-based Sarah Brown Agency, which specialised in sf and fantasy art for the publishing industry.

The year in which these reprints appeared is missing from each book's copyright page, but the print run is given and says much about Wyndham's enduring popularity. The Day of the Triffids was approaching its fiftieth reprint since Penguin first published it in 1954, The Kraken Wakes was on its thirtieth reprint since 1955 and The Chrysalids its sixtieth since 1958.

In addition to these eight covers Salwowski also did a cover for Wyndham's Consider Her Ways and Others but the book was not reprinted until the following decade and by then the series had undergone another redesign by Spencer Wilson.
