In my last but one blog I mentioned the recycling of an PAN image used by Hodder for their 60’s ‘Saint’ series. I have now found and added another 10 I had but I still don’t know if any of them feature second hand artwork.
I did find a couple were signed by Gordon King and contacted him. He promptly replied and named another two unsigned ones as his. We are chatting further next month and I’ll list the PAN covers (I know at least 2) that he did along with other examples of his artwork later.
Exhibition update. Still no offers of the last title needed although I did see my doctor (socially I hasten to add) and she has promised to ask around her friends in India.
You can find the upload here:
I tried to reply to your email address but it came back as undeliverable so I’ll post it here.
Many thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog about reusing artwork. I would love to include this in a future blog and to mention you and your excellent range of covers on Flickr if that is OK?
I’m really pleased to see your cover as it clearly shows the signature of Michael Johnson but on The Saint cover it has got cut off. I’m going to have to have another look and see if any of the others could be by him as well.
Keep in touch,
PS Talking of Michael Johnson have you seen this publication?
Thank you for your reply. It’s fine by me if you mention my photostream. I’m currently over 5 million views so are very excited that some many people love to watch the paperback covers of my collection. I past the 6000 mark so this is a nice way to show my collection to others. Love your side and the Pan paperbacks especially the bright colored covers of the mid pan periode so to speak. Will read the Michael Johnson article.
Here is my private email adress, don’t know why the Yahoo.com doesn’t work.
I have a German paperback with the same cover art (mirrored) and it’s signed by Michael Johnson. I will upload it on my photostream. I call them twincovers and this one is a twin of Thanks to the Saint
