    Richard Corben - A Feast Unknown Cover Original Art (Fokker D-LXIX Press, 1975). The publisher's synopsis read, "Lord Grandrith armed with the belief that he is the son of Jack the Ripper tells the story of his remarkable and unbridled life, beginning with his discovery of the secret of immortality." Jose Philip Farmer's A Feast Unknown speculates on what the famous Lord of the Jungle might have really been like if he had possessed the moral sensibilities of an animal and the physique of a superman. This stunning wrap-around cover was painted in acrylic on board, and has an image area of 17.5" x 23.5". The art was trimmed right to the image area in the two upper corners only; otherwise it's in Excellent condition. Richard Corben was the perfect choice to illustrate the dark themes presented in this classic of underground literature. Corben's cover creates a riveting, three-dimensional portrait of a megalomaniacal Jungle Lord, stalked by a lion on the hunt. Richard Corben's mastery of anatomy, mood, and reflected color and light ranks him among the elite of fantasy painters; the off-kilter, erie green sky glows with the perfect color choice to spotlight this tense, surreal scene. A Corben cover showcasing his and Farmer's outrageous vision of the Jungle Lord -- kreegah -- this work is sure to be hotly pursued, so bid accordingly!
