Once again, a powerful line-up of three important artists. The cover feature is on Paul Rader, whose name is, I have to admit, unknown to me, but his covers are not. Beginning with the notorious and infamous soft-core publisher Midwood, Paul brought the essence of sexy paperbacks to his paintings and is today one of the most coveted artists. He also did Mike Shayne covers for Dell, as well as Ace Double-Novels and men's magazine covers.
Next up is Ted Lewin, today a fine artist but who also got his start along with James Bama, back in the Men's "sweat" mags of the 1950s. He went on to wonderful children's and young adult cover art and his own books of animals around the world (Everglades, Baja, Lost City, Tiger Trek). His Island of the Blue Dolphins (1990) art won a Caldecott.
And then we have Edwin John Prittie: American Illustrator. Prittie is a name I was vaguely aware of for his relatively minor children's book illustrations, done contemporary with N.C. Wyeth and Frank Schooner. But as usual, Illustrators goes far deeper and reveals his entire career, from Robin Hood (1922), to Alice in Wonderland (1923), numerous magazine covers in the 1920s, and, here's the real kicker, Horrors of War, Wars New Pictures, and The Lone Ranger trading cards circa 1938-1940. From children's books to the most notorious card sets ever done! Amazing!
