For a moment in the late 70's Ken Kelly captured the field of fantasy cover illustration with his covers to a large number of Robert E. Howard's vintage heroes. His Conan covers for the Berkley editions remain some of my favorites images of the brawny barbarian. I have both the paperback and hardback versions of these, and they were the one source for raw REH until the relatively recent Ballantine editions.

Here is the art with the logos intact.

Rip Off
