Dejah Thoris

But then, of course, along came Frazetta's vision of Dejah Thoris and swept all the others away.

In the 60's my father always had plenty of science fiction pocketbooks laying around, and it was the cover art that started me reading them. All of the Burroughs, the Conan stories, and everything else. Now the internet lets me gather these images without buying the books. Some people collect comics and books for profit without even looking at them but all I want is the images for pleasure, even if they are worthless jpg's. Thanks for sharing great images.

That's exactly how I feel—images for pleasure. Worthless jpg's make a great collection, and it gives me great pleasure to be sharing as others are. I understand that people need to make a living, but it's discouraging when prices of ephemera keep going up and up, mercilessly, encouraging hoarding, and making it a 'hobby' for the rich.

Imagination is priceless, so thank gosh for the internet.

I've showing a lot of stuff that probably is already shown here and there on the internet, but I'm trying to share bigger files so the details can be seen. And some of the stuff I have coming up is somewhat uncommon.

Thanks and stay tooned.

Wow... this blog is filled with gorgeous imagery everywhere. I loved the South Seas Clipper picture, the Deco Metropolis, the Hopper covers, and of course, Frazetta. Thanks for finding all of these.
