When I posted “Look Here: Three paperback covers plus with art by Don Ivan Punchatz” back in mid-May, I included a small “bonus” JPEG, reposted from another site, that displays all three of Punchatz’s iconic covers for Avon Science Fiction paperback edition of Isaac Asimov’s classic “Foundation Trilogy.” I would have posted my own scans, except that, at the time, I was missing the first book in the trilogy. Earlier today, however, I found, and purchased, a slightly beat-up copy of the Avon edition of Foundation at a local bookstore that perfectly matches the slightly beat-up copies of Foundation and Empire and Second Foundation that I already have in my collection. So now, as is my wont, I’m here to share my good fortune with the rag-tag fugitive followers of Ragged Claws Network:

“Don Ivan Punchatz — Don Ivan’s ability to touch men with acrylic and melt them into beasts, or touch beasts with oil and ink, and voila, they are senators or brokers is endlessly stunning. Metaphor, after all, is the universal language and Don Ivan Punchatz could teach at Berlitz.” — Ray Bradbury
The covers displayed above were scanned by me from books in my own collection; the covers displayed below were not:
