We’re on a roll! Yet another outstanding cover, this one being the first edition of Soft Touch. Victor Kalin was a heck of a cover artist, and he shows it here, capturing the motion of the girl turning to face the intruder, while her lover is represented only by a single arm.

I like this one.

Update: (08/21/2020) This one just looks better and better each time I see it. The composition uses the iconic victim in the foreground and menacing villain in the background and I like how he has one hand on the doorknob and the other on the door frame, not to mention the ga-roovy wallpaper. And it’s amazing given how many times I slobbered over studied the cover, I never noticed that Lorraine still has on her yellow panties and matching world’s-lowest-slung bandeau bra.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a USA version of Soft Touch, printed by Fawcett as Gold Medal 1-3559-4, with a cover price of $1.25.
