American illustrator and graphic designer Richard Amsel (December 1947 – November 17, 1985) was perhaps best known for the poster art he produced for Hollywood movies such as The Champ, Chinatown, Julia, The Last Picture Show, The Last Tycoon, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Muppet Movie, Murder on the Orient Express, Nashville, Papillon, The Shootist, The Sting, Flash Gordon, The Dark Crystal, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. He also produced over forty covers in 13 years for TV Guide and worked for many other high-profile clients. He was the envy of his peers. He died at the age of 37.

Amsel fans might be interested to know that the cover of Dangerous Summer was published in 1969, the same year that Amsel’s submission to a nationwide talent search for an illustrator to produce the poster art for the Barbra Streisand musical Hello, Dolly! was selected by 20th Century Fox for the film’s campaign. At the time he won the talent search, the 22-year-old Amsel was still a student at the Philadelphia College of Art.

Look Here: Four Agatha Christie novels with cover art by Tom Adams

Although I have never read a single novel by Agatha Christie, I have over forty old paperbacks with her name on them in my personal collection. Most of them have cover art by Tom Adams but a handful feature cover art by William Teason. My plan is, eventually, to scan them all for display here. As regular visitors here might recall, I posted a scan of an Agatha Christie with cover art by Tom Adams on Halloween, as well as a couple of Raymond Chandlers with art by Tom Adams back in August. And now here are four more:

Tom Adams + mystery novels = illustration gold!

Why Tom Adams’ cover art has not secured him a spot in the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame is a greater mystery than anything ever dreamt of in the world of fiction…

Keywords: A Pocket Full of Rye, Third Girl, By the Pricking of My Thumbs, Cat Among the Pigeons.
