    Description

    Bob Powell (attributed) - Original Cover Art for First Love Illustrated #40 (Harvey, 1953). She yearned for love... and knew only lust! She hungered for tenderness... and found only savage desire! She was a "Prisoner of Passion." This true love cover is attributed to Bob Powell, and what a passionate display of pen and ink it is! Thick, lush, lines melted with crisp textures and great contrasts of shadows make this a sensual delight. The overall art size is 14.25" x 19" with a 11.5" x 17" image area. The work is in incredible condition, with some very slight staining along a missing paste-up at the top. Along all four edges, outside the image area, there are glue stains from missing crop paper. Includes all the original logo and indicia paste-ups.
