Featuring a mysterious fortune teller eerily appearing behind a crystal ball with her vision in the background, this fabulous other-wordly cover painting by the important American genre artist Paul Lehr, was created for the July,1972 issue of Occult Magazine. Lehr, who studied illustration at the prestigious Pratt Institute, was one of the most prolific science fiction cover artists of the 60s and 70s. He primarily worked creating paperback book covers, but also contributed several covers for this Popular Library Publishers science fiction, post-pulp, digest title. Nicely framed and french matted under glass with a high grade edition of the published digest included in the sale.
