Pete Emslie just wrote in to remind me that there's a book out on Basil Gogos, the cover artist for "Famous Monsters of Filmland." magazine. Mike F reminded me that he showed it to me a while back. The offset reproduction is only OK, but it's handy to have all those cool pictures in one place. If you're not familiar with Gogos then check out these samples (above and below). Click to enlarge.
This one (above) isn't by Gogos, but I couldn't resist throwing it in. Ackerman (the editor of Famous Monsters) had good taste in his choice of artists and designers.
