      I think I just about had an aneurism when I found it this weekend. We were just leaving the booksellers, but off in the corner was a teeny little section I hadn't looked in yet. My wife stopped to check something out, so I went over to take a quick peek. Found this little beauty on the bottom shelf for three bucks.

      Great score!

      I've seen reproductions of this cover, but it never looked so shockingly red. Now I *need* it.

      Thanks for sharing all your Lustig covers.

      It's definitely a fiery red -- very appropriate to the design. Good luck in your hunt!

      I have my account set up so only my contacts can download full res images. Feel free to mark me as a contact, and I'll do the same. Please also be sure to give credit to Alvin Lustig as the designer, as well as myself for the photograph.
