Killer Mine

1967, gouache on board, 56cm X 81cm

Cover illustration commissioned by Corgi for a Mickey Spillane novel first published in 1965.  The “pulpiest” of all pulp fiction writers, Spillane clearly hit on a formula that worked.  His books have sold more than 225 million copies worldwide and seven of his books feature in the 15 bestselling books of all time in America.  Eye-catching cover illustrations were critical to the sales strategy of moving large quantities of books off shelves quickly and, as a result, illustrators had extraordinary impact.
