  1. Bob Pepper is my favorite artist to find on old paperbacks. He mined dynamic symmetry for all it was worth. Awesome colors. Great links, thanks.

  2. Hey

    All around great blog. A freind of mine showed this to me a little while ago and I didnt think to comment. But the Bob Pepper additions changed all that. Ive been trying to find covers by him for a couple years now. Simce I first started looking his web presence has grown, and its been good to see the web get familiar. Ive got some additional covers and art here:

    Thanks for all the quality posts

  4. I have a Bob Pepper original silk screen. It is of a women in 19th century clothing. She has a black dress on with a white shawl w/lace on the edge. She also has ared & pink apron on. There is an orange cat on her lap. Behind her is a red wall with pink & green flowers. there is a window with a black horse outside. the curtains are multi-colored with geometical designs and there is brown balls on the boarder. It doesn’t look like sleeve art or abook cover. Could any one please help me identify this piece. I would like to find out when the piece was done or even just to know the title, would be agreat help.
