Bookcover Spotlight #19

Land of Terror (Pellucidar, #6)

Land of Terror is the sixth book of the Pellucidar series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The cover art here is by Frank Frazetta. This is a later entry in the series and I've heard it's not great, but Frazetta sure can set a tone. I have no idea if this scene is in the book, but it makes me want to read it!

Frazetta liked to draw his characters without the burden of, you know, clothes. This is a pretty elemental scene - it all just works in a very primal way.

Here is a close up view.

  1. That is a lot of muscles! There is a hell of detail in the cover, it is retro but incredible!
