There were no shadows in the pea-soup fog we’ve had outside the last two days. So, I’ll take the shadow challenge literally and use the cover of my most recent book sale: Colonial Survey, by Murray Leinster.
Have I mentioned how much I love vintage sci-fi covers? When I find books like this I always want to keep them just for the cover art. This cover is by Wallace Wood (1927-1981), an American comic book artist, book and magazine illustrator, and independent publisher.
I had a good sale day: two books on amazon and a sweater on eBay, plus I’ve been delivering donations and making progress on clearing out. I’ll celebrate by sharing a few more book covers. These shadowy illustrations come from the books I haven’t listed for sale… yet. I’m saving them for last because I like looking at them.
That’s all for today. Now it’s back to the bookshelf for me…
Have you ever judged a book by its cover?
