- Full Description
Phil Normand's new, first-ever coloring of the cover image by Frazetta for Tarzan and the Castaways, Canaveral Press, 1964. This was one of our very favorite images in the Edgar Rice. Burroughs 100 Years Chronology, so we are pleased to also offer it in its original form, as a variant, new cover for the original book (which was printed in b&w with an awful red banner across the art). Comes with two bookmarks, one with full details of the original book. The jacket includes the original flaps and back cover typography and design, with a color image of the ad for Richard Lupoff’s Master of Adventure, ready either for display or use with the original book.
Phil allowed us to purchase the last 10 copies of this, putting it officially out of print. Signed & numbered from just 64, on the rear of the jacket.
From Phil’s Recoverings web site: "Ever since Biblo and Tannen placed a banner across the cover art of TARZAN AND THE CASTAWAYS to keep from shocking the public, fans have longed to see the famous Frazetta image properly displayed on their copies of the Canaveral Press dust-jacket. Now, after over 100 hours of research, careful study of more than 70 different Frazetta watercolors, and careful production, the Alternate Timeline™ version of TARZAN AND THE CASTAWAYS is available from Recoverings.
"With coloring approved by Frazetta friend and collector, and Edgar Rice Burroughs scholar Robert R. Barrett, this full color dust-jacket presents the art with the same palette and watercolor techniques that Frazetta himself might well have used at that point in his career. Here is a new way to see and display the final collection of ERB’s shorter Tarzan stories. This is how the jacket might have looked if Canaveral had had the money to do it right.
"A limited edition, only 64 of these jackets will be available. Each is individually printed, to order, on an Epson Stylus Pro 3880, with 8-color UltraChromeK3 archival inks on 47lb. Red River Premium Matte paper, to closely match the stock of the original.
Jacket comes with a numbered bibliographic bookmark with details on the original edition and the first publication of all the stories it collected.
Phil Normand has, for the past 19 years, been reconstructing the original first edition jackets, as well as creating new variants, like this one, for classic ERB books. Also includes a full color bookmark, a flyer for Phil's dust jacket offerings, and a meticulous guide to folding and using the jacket. You can find more works by him online at Recoverings.com.
We liked this artwork so much, we got permission from ERB Inc. and from Phil to use it as the cover of our Late Summer 2018 catalog.
