Covers to remember

Seen here are two pocket books with cover art by W.G.L Bartsch (dating back to 1974 and 1973), the prominent artist from Denmark that were seen on hundreds and hundreds of covers in the 70´s and 80´s in Sweden (not least on westerns and adventure books). These titles, Kosmos and Saturnus, used to print Hans Kneifel´s Space Patrol Orion books, of which these are two examples. Bartsch supposedly used his wife, a model from France, for his covers. As you can see, they were better than most.

Good times.
