Burne Stealing!


Here's a Tarzan cover by an unknown artist which clearly draws its inspiration from a famous Burne Hogarth image.



The lush and vivid flow of a Hogarth page is not naturalistic necessarily, but it is dramatic and compelling.

  1. Came across the UK paperback of Tarzan of the Apes the other day (from Penguin Books) and noticed the cover seemed awfully familiar...

    Mick Brownfield is credited as the artist and the design is apparently by Coralie Bickford-Smith, but it seems to me that Hogarth did all the heavy lifting.
