    Description

    Kelly Freas Recoil Paperback Novel Cover Painting Original Art (Ace Double Books, 1971). The Ace Double series was the biggest bargain in science fiction -- two novels in one 75-cent book, attached back-to-back. Finish one novel, then flip the book and start another. Freas, a back-to-back artist in his own right, was a prolific and versatile SF illustrator who also happened to be one of the best comedic portraitists ever to grace a cover of MAD Magazine. This Ace Double catches Freas at his SF best, with touches of the exaggerated humor that characterized his other work. Pastels on hand-finished bond-paper construction, with collage effects and watercolor retouching. Image area, 9" x 13", affixed to larger backing sheet. Excellent condition.
