TARZAN AND THE JEWELS OF OPAR - P. J. Monahan, Cover art, ALL-STORY WEEKLY, Nov. 18, 1916
This variant dust jacket for G&D editions of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar was built around the P. J.
Monahan cover illustration for the November 18, 1916 edition of ALL-STORY WEEKLY, a pulp magazine
edited by Robert Davis. After J. Allen St. John, Monahan is my favorite prewar Burroughs artist. I finally
found a good enough scan of the ALL-STORY cover to allow me to edit the image. I expanded the original
cover to create a wrap-around dust jacket by cutting and pasting individual sections of the original into the
"working area," until I had a complete wrap-around illustration. It took me a while to locate a font that was
similar to Monahan's lettering. In the end I was happy with the overall result and enjoyed making it, and I
hope you enjoy it, too.
