RECOVERINGS RELEASES ALTERNATE JACKET FOR
CANAVERAL PRESS JOHN CARTER OF MARS
Phil Normand has just finished the fourth in his series of alternate
dust jackets for Edgar Rice Burroughs collectors.
This new dust jacket for the Canaveral Press edition of JOHN CARTER OF MARS is designed using J. Allen St. John's cover from the "Amazing Stories" magazine of January, 1941 which first published the novelette, "John Carter and the Giant of Mars." It has been known since 1963 that the actual author of the story was Burroughs' artist son, John Coleman Burroughs, and in honor of that fact Normand has designed the titling and author lettering of the jacket using J.C. Burroughs' logo and signature from his "John Carter of Mars" Sunday comic strip. The spine art uses a portrait panel of John Carter from the strip
and is designed to match up with the penultimate volume in the Mars series, LLANA OF GATHOL published by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. in 1948.
Normand has previously created alternate dust jackets for SAVAGE PELLUCIDAR, THUVIA, MAID OF MARS and A FIGHTING MAN OF MARS which bring together art references of bibliographic importance to the books, thereby creating truly alternate "might-have-been" dust jackets and not just redesigns.
