Godwin in Liberty

Now, browsing through old magazines will more often than not result in a surprise or two. As the case of the Hubert Mathieu illustration in the previous post.
I originally picked up that issue of Liberty on eBay because of the striking cover.


I just couldn't resist scanning both the front and the back...

The second surprise in that issue was three Frank Godwin illustrations.
They illustrated the seventh part of Erle Stanley Garner's Perry Mason story "The Case of the Howling Dog". And here they are. Enjoy!

... and nobody decides to publish a book about Godwin!

I'm referring to a book with and about the art of Godwin. And a book with his pen & ink work ("Rusty Riley", for example) must be extraordinary well reproduced or the people will not get the real idea of how great his talent was...

Let's hope someone will. But I guess it would take a long time and lots of $$$ to find and restore the artwork.

On the other hand maybe his family still have stuff in their posession that would make such book fairly "easy" to produce.
