Oh how far the might have fallen! After Cancel covers like this and this and – mraow! – this, we are reduced to this middling effort. No wonder nobody reads real books anymore. It’s a wedding bouquet, see, and the flowers are dying, see, and it’s all symbolism for a dying marriage, see, and … oh forget it.

I don’t know who drew this, but I’m inclined to pin the rap on Robert McGinnis. It is reminiscent of his latter day stuff. Help me, Mr. Wizard! Take me back to my own time when long legged girls roamed free on the covers of cheap paperback books, when America was strong and good, when you could get a chocolate dipped ice cream cone for tuppence ha’penny, although not in America. Update (04/29/2013): Whaddya know? Nobody drew this cover. It’s actually a photo cover.
