Sorry I’ve been so slow to post updates. Fact is, as the site has grown, I’ve had to worry more and more about how to reduce RCN’s CPU usage. I’ve already scaled back various bells and whistles on the site, and I’ve reduced my own activity in the admin section to a bare minimum, but I fear the day is coming when I will be forced to upgrade the site to a more expensive hosting package… or shut it down… ugh…

I collect ’em (if they’re cheap enough), I scan ’em (when I can force myself to do the work), I process ’em (though I have no idea what I’m doing), and I post ’em (with a modicum of commentary, when the mood strikes; with blather like this, when I can’t think of anything interesting to say, which these days is nine times out of ten):
The 1964 edition of The Deep Range by Arthur C. Clarke with the cover by Paul Lehr is a pretty cool find, I think. It’s a pity the artwork is obscured by the title, etc., but the book is in excellent condition, so it scanned fairly nicely, and of course, it is instructive to compare it with Lehr’s later covers, which, unlike The Deep Range, typically combine highly saturated colours with a strict adherence to traditional colour schemes.
