    Description

    Joe Lombardero Lupe Paperback Cover Painting Original Art Group (Ballantine Books, 1978). The eerie cover for Gene Thompson's occult thriller Lupe was made up of two elements: the front cover painting depicting a demonic hand clutching an ankh, and a larger painting used as a two-page spread on the inside front cover, with the child's face showing through a die-cut hole. The smaller painting has an image area of 11.75" x 18.75" and is in Excellent condition with light overall wear; the larger painting has an image area of 24.5" x 18.75" and is in Very Good condition with a light horizontal scratch about 3" from the bottom and overall wear. Tearsheets for the double-cover are attached to the larger painting. Both are gouache on illustration board. A copy of the printed paperback is also included.
