Monday Eye Candy: The Lost Continent

The Lost Continent by Edgar Rice Burroughs

This has to be one of the most understated book cover illustrations I have seen. It certainly represents a scene from the the story, but unlike most more modern cover art, it doesn't overplay it or enhance the scene.

I quite like the “Flash Gordon” like way that the lead character has been portrayed here, also the subtle colour scheme is refreshing compared to many book cover painting.

The book itself is certainly worth a read as it combines Burroughs familiar Sword and Planet style with a Post Apocalyptic future story.

Monday Eye Candy is Pulp themed, offering beautiful artwork to inspire and amuse!

Wednesday Eye Candy is sculptural, offering some of my favourite figure sculpts and models!

Friday Eye Candy features painting and visual images that capture the imagination and offer inspiration!
