Variant - AT THE EARTH'S CORE - Canaveral Press and G&D editions - St. John artwork
I love the St. John illustration for the first edition cover to AT THE EARTH'S CORE, but I have never cared particularly for the
Mahlon Blaine illustrations of the early Canaveral editions. Therefore, I have developed a variant facsimile for the Canaveral
edition using the J. Allen St. John two-color illustration opposite page 258 of the McClurg edition (see above right). I also
adapted the illustration to G&D editions of the 1920s and 30s. I modified the back cover and flaps on both editions.
To create the illusion of color, I infused transparent hues, building layer by layer halting only when I felt tone and value
were correct, giving the finished illustration a water-color look that I find esthetically pleasing. I hope you do too.
