Original book cover illustration for one of several wartime/combat novels relating to WW2 by well-known author Leo Kessler (pseud Charles Whiting) that Pether illustrated for Futura Books in the 1970s. This one was published 1977 (cover shown for reference). Hand-painted in Acrylic and gouache on illustration board - and it's one of the larger cover paintings he created, 21.75" x 13.75" with a label attesting to its authenticity signed by Pether's widow, mounted to the back. Pether did more than a dozen such paintings by authors well-known for their thrilling military adventure novels. I am listing only a sampling, if you are interested in this genre and want to see ones not listed, contact me. But bear in mind every book cover illustration I offer is unique - so if you want this one, don't hesitate.
