A Return to “Bennett’s Beauties”

You may remember that from early December of last year through the first week of 2018, my other blog, Killer Covers, ran a 43-post tribute to American artist and paperback illustrator Harry Bennett. Prior to the series’ completion, I began an e-mail interview with Bennett’s youngest son, Tom. Unfortunately, the series concluded before our exchange was finished. Only now am I finally able to present the results of that conversation, which covers everything from Harry Bennett’s personal history and education to his ultimate retirement and declining health in old age. You can now read the interview here.

And over the next couple of days, Killer Covers will carry two galleries of Bennett’s remarkable book fronts. Keep a watch for them.
