I'm looking for visually striking posters of books that I love. Could be an exact book cover blown up, or perhaps an artist's own illustration. What's a good source for these?

There are a million places to find movie posters online, but what about books? Of course, there's not a century-long history of book posters advertising future book releases on the walls of book theaters, so maybe that's why for the most part they seem harder to find.
I imagine a common answer will be Etsy, which is a great source if broad. Litographs.com is more focused on books, though I find the posters there for the most part visually stagnant. Any others that Google isn't immediately popping up for me?
In particular, looking for posters of Gravity's Rainbow or Crying of Lot 49 by Pynchon, Hundred Years of Solitude or Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Garcia Marquez, or the Cyberiad or His Master's Voice by Stanislaw Lem. Original language preferred but not required. There is an option or two on Etsy, but looking for more!
