Vintage romance novels often have really wonderful covers, which is one of their most appealing features. Yet there doesn’t seem to be very much information out there about the artists who create them.
Now, I’ve certainly found plenty of sites, and even a few books, that reprint these covers, seldom mentioning the artists (see the RESOURCES tab). Fans of pulp detective, science fiction, and Western stories have done a lot of work documenting the artists who created the covers of those genres, but when it comes to vintage romance novels, there seems to be a gap in the general knowledge—even though many of these same artists created covers across multiple genres. This blog is my attempt to promote interest in these artists and their work in the romance genre while documenting who was behind the masterpieces. Thanks for your interest.
