February 6th, 2011 – Book Covers

by on Feb.06, 2011, under Books

Here are two new acquisitions from yesterday:

Wow! What a cover! That is Steve McQueen and what a likeness! That’s Carroll Baker also well depicted. The one odd thing about the illustration is the enormous arm that was painted on McQueen. I wonder if the artist had the arm higher up and the publisher wanted it lowered to show off Bakers chest. Lowering it meant making the arm really long.

There is no credit given to the artist. Though the artwork has a Charles Geer flavor. If you know who the artist is, please add to the comments.

In that this is based on the true story of the battle at Guadalcanal, I would have thought there would have been a photograph. No photograph could depict was this painted cover does.  What outstanding work!

Again, no credit to the artist. Please add if you know.
