This is the original cover painting for the novel by Graham Masterson for the large trade paperback edition published by MacDonald, 1987. Just two years later, Pether painted another cover for the very same novel - which is also available! Realistic, but with a far more classic/vintage feel to the scene, matched by the plane behind the couple, yet totally appealingly rendered in acrylic and gouache on illustration board, 11.5" x 17.25" in panoramic format - though only the central image was used for the cover. Comes with a label attesting to its authenticity signed by Pether's widow, mounted to the back. One of a kind - so if you love it, don't hesitate.
