While uploading a new batch of covers to flickr, I noticed that the woman in the background of this Paul Rader painting was done using the same model/photograph as in this 1964 Rader cover I posted previously.
Looks like a new painting rather than over-painting or art director recycling as you frequently see on these covers. It's an interesting glimpse into Rader's artistic process.
Lots of fresh cheesecake in my Pulp Fiction Cover Gallery. You can subscribe to an RSS feed of my covers here if interested (this is separate from/in addition to the regular blog feed) .
William Smith was cosmically doomed to the book business when he skipped school to read HP Lovecraft in an abandoned cabin in the woods. He's worked for barnesandnoble.com, Tor Books, and Warner. Now he sells dodgy books and freelances to make a "living."
