Ok, don’t look at the name of the cover artist; just take a guess. If you’re like me, you guessed Robert McGinnis because it just looks like his work, particularly the montage effect. But if you did, you’d be wrong, just like me. A Man of Affairs is the only JDM book that has two different William Schmidt covers, and this one is the better of the two. Maybe I’ll post the other one someday so you can compare them.

The $2.25 price tag lasted less time than any other, usually from 1980 to 1982 so this cover is also a bit unusual in that the price was maintained from the 10th printing in 1981 to the 11th printing in 1984.
