    Description

    Unknown Artist - Original Cover Art for Tomb of Terror #3 (Harvey, 1952). An amazingly horrific bondage cover from this classic pre-code horror title. Although Lee Elias did many covers for this title, we do not believe this is his work, but it is a very graphic and eerie piece. The title stat is original. Some elements of the bottom edge of the art have been cut and re-placed (notably the hand coming up out of the water), and whatever backing board was used has been lost, leaving a couple of small "holes" in the art. Also, unfortunately, the piece was folded in half at some point, leaving a noticeable horizontal crease that does break the ink. Still, a very powerful, horrific image that would be a fine addition to any collection, and given the scarcity of original pre-code horror covers in general, a rare opportunity. 14" x 20".
