    Description

    Stephen Fabian Risque Stories #4 Cover Original Art (Cryptic Publications, 1986). A delicate gem of a cover for Risque Stories, a fiction fanzine that attempted to recreate the feel of the old "Spicy" pulps, with a small amount of fantasy thrown into the mix. Much of the charm of these issues had to do with the custom-made covers -- of which this Fabian illustration is a stellar example. Created in ink over graphite on Coquille, with an image area of 7.5" x 11.5". With light toning; production tape and residue in the top border; soft corner bumps; and dust shadows along the edges. In Very Good condition.
