rocket, the earlier thread mentioning the IM cover is here.

With regards to your poster idea, there are some good quality images in Weist's book. Armed with a scanner, it wouldn't be too difficult to make a poster sized image of one of these. I'll look through it later to see whether any of these Ellis images are there. (PS: I have a scanner...)

Copyright: if you only want to make one for your own private use, and not exhibit it to the public or charge people money to see it, then this would come under the "fair use" provisions of copyright law. However, if you want to make multiple copies to distribute, that's a different matter.

WildGravity ~ The cover of which you speak, and the one on the editions I use in my classroom, "click." It is a great cover, too!

For all the regulars, here is a page I haven't seen (or can remember): Quite inclusive, as things go.

Thanks Phil. That, as is usual with you, is valid, needed, and useful information. I hope to God you will reconsider coming back to this board. Do not let someone like him run you of all people off of here. You are an integral and loved person on this board. Please come back!

Phil, would that include making several copies for a few friends to use in private as well?

I've just made an astounding discovery, for me anyway. Whilst perusing my F-451 book after several threads lately have mentioned several things within it, I turned the book over and looked at the back cover photo of Ray. This particular edition is a 1967 hardback library edition that a friend from work gave to me. I guess I never really scrutinized the photo. I immediately realized tonight that it is the same picture sketch of Ray superimposed over the lava picture on many of his Bantam paperback books from sixties into the seventies. It is usually only on the back, but I have a couple of editions, Martian Chronicles for instance, where its on the front cover as well. I never really thought the sketch really captured how Ray really looked and now I have proof positive. By the way, several people are working on getting me a disc with the pictures scanned from the cover of Illustrated Man and the lava scene on the back. I'm hopeful of then getting an inexpensive poster made. Check these pictures out! If I cannot download all on here, I'll do consecutive posts.

I think the sketch is too thin and cold, Ray's face is fuller, more life and love within...

So, rocket-man, back to Mr. Dean Ellis, who must have used that specific pic for the series of Bantams. Yes!?

Go ahead. Give him a call and get to the bottom of this once and for all...

I just had never before seen the picture as opposed to the sketch. Ellis may not have been the artist, could have been superimposed by someone else. I was excited to see the photo on the back of my book.
