This great Pan cover restores my belief in paperback cover design. From fifty years ago. I love the drawing style. The gritty depiction of the two men is just first rate. Even though the style is deliberately non-realistic, it feels more realistic than most painted covers. And you know how I feel about detailed wrinkles in clothing!

I don’t know how to say this delicately, but what is with the girl’s pose? Not only is it most … uh … unladylike, but did the artist really draw her … uh … no, there’s no way to say it delicately.
