Darrell K. Sweet: People of the Mist

Original painting created for the paperback cover illustration for the novel by H. Rider Haggard, published by Ballantine Books, 3rd printing, 1977.   An early and important work by Sweet, one of his earliest for Ballantine (he worked for them until 1986), and created before artists were encouraged (or permitted) to sign their illustrations in the image; he was credited for the cover art as Darrell Sweet - he turned to signing his illustrations, and with his initials, DKS by the 80s.  This classic lost race fantasy novel was first published serially in the weekly magazine Tit-Bits, between December 1893 and August 1894; it was reprinted in 1973 by Ballantine Books as the sixty-third paperback volume of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series.   The painting is in acrylic on board, c. 24" x 14” signed on the back and custom framed to 27" x 16".
