This one tugs at my memory, as if we’ve seen it before. But we haven’t. It just has several similarities with this Blue cover. Of course, both are drawn by William Schmidt as a part of his “double” series, even though he cheats a tad by extending the pill bottle picture down the page so it merges with the large, “main” illustation. Both feature skulls on the cover, although this one cleverly makes the pill into an X-ray machine so you only see the skull through the pill. Both of them also have a shadowy figure: Blue shows a face while this cover shows a complete person just to the left of the skeleton teeth. You may have to click on the picture to see the latter.

Was Travis really graying about the temples back in 1964 when this book was written?
