A blood red, action packed paperback cover painting by the prolific artist and illustrator James Alfred Meese, this appeared on an as of yet unidentified title. This large format oil-on-board depicts a hijacking on the high seas, showing a group of turbaned pirates with machetes ominously threatening a captive who appears front in center in this spine chilling narrative work. The over the top use of red throughout the image heightens the sense of violence. The only verso marking is the inventory number #19, we are still searching for the published title, drop us a line if you have this book in your collection.
