This cover is a good example of a bad idea. The first paperback edition of this book had a wonderful cover featuring excellent full cover art, but in 1976 it is far more important to remind everyone just who wrote this book, so the same artwork has been squeezed down. In a few years, the designers will figure out how to compress it even further, but let’s enjoy the little we have now.

Update (09/25/2013): The artist is Robert McGinnis, of course! Fixed the publication date.
