Artist Murray Tinkelman Born on This Date, 1933

Murray Tinkelman, who died last year, produced covers for the mid-'70s Ballantine reprints of Lovecraft which are almost as iconic as the Michael Whelan ones in the early '80s. This is my small collection, as I don't often see his editions in used bookstores. See a more comprehensive collection of his Lovecraft paperback covers here (which also includes a great interview with the artist) and more Matheson here.

Mr. Tinkleman produced some very well done covers and his style suits the subject matter of weird fiction perfectly.

Wow those are great covers! I love the colors he used; and the framing around the image/title. I'll have to keep my eye out for those in my hunts :)
