BSFA Best Art longlist

More on the BSFA long lists: 28 works of art are listed in the Best Art category, but no links are given, so I'm supplying them here. Of the 28, 13 or 14 are book covers (in one case it isn't clear); 6 are art installations; 4 are standalone graphics; two are graphic stories, and two are short films. I have tracked down all but one of them (and am a bit surprised that I couldn't find that one in particular, for reasons noted below. Found it).
