Mike Hinge – The Leaves of Time
First of all apologies regarding the hiatus between posting on Sci-Fi-O-Rama, no excuses! So then, SCSI cables are dusted off, my SyQuest drive’s green light is flickering, just waiting then for the Scanner to warm up and Photoshop 3.0 to load… Hmmm, f*ck that, let’s start then instead with a something from my favourite Flickr bank – a psychedelic Mike Hinge book cover produced for Neal Barret Jr’s 1971 Novel “The Leaves of Time”.
I love the work of New Zealand born Mike Hinge and have featured his work three times before, and I’m also lucky enough to own a copy his uber rare portfolio book “The Mike Hinge Experience” and I’ll post some more from that soon…. There’s a little more on the life of Mike here at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hinge
This Image comes via Flickr User via Flickr User mystique123_2000 who actually trades in vintage & rare books (cool!). See more of her SF collection here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mystique123_2000/ or visit her Amazon Store front: http://www.amazon.com/shops/terran_trader_rarefinds
Addendum: Also of considerable interest the porporbooksblog has scans of the July 1979 Heavy Metal Magazine, which features the Mike Hinge & Neal Adams illustrated story ‘…Rears Its Ugly Green Head’
