    Description

    Virgil Finlay - Amazing Stories May, 1963 Back Cover Illustration Original Art (Ziff-Davis, 1963). Leigh Brackett's yarn, "The Road to Sinarat," served as the basis for this gorgeous Virgil Finlay drawing. Production notes indicate that it appeared as the back cover of the issue. The mastery that went into this ink on coquille paper drawing can only be fully appreciated by viewing Finlay's finely detailed original in person. This piece is in Excellent condition, with an image area of approximately 6" x 9.25". The art was signed in the lower right corner.
