The Solomon Of Jones!

Jeff Jones in my estimation created the definitive visual Solomon Jones. The portrait above captures the dour dedication to God's justice which defined one of Robert E. Howard's most effective creations.

Jones always seemed to know how to present the Puritan warrior to best effect.

Anyone know where this image was published?

Or this later one by him?

Rip Off


  1. As near as I can tell that image you have second from the bottom was a color plate from the 1967 Donald Grant hardcover of Howard's RED SHADOWS.

    The bottom one is said to be the cover of a book entitled ILLUSTRATING ROBERT E HOWARD but I can find no info on that book and I'd almost bet the image appeared elsewhere first.
