Mike Hinge - The Leaves of Time

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, fuck that, lets start then instead with a something from my Flickr favourite bank; a classic 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’

    For what it’s worth, I’ve posted a striking Neal Adams / Mike Hinge comic, “….Rears Its Ugly Green Head”, from the July 1979 issue of ‘Heavy Metal’ at my PorPor Books Blog:

    hey tarbandu,

    I recognise some of those Mike Hinge images from “The Mike Hinge Experience” that dates from 1973 so I believed – perhaps it’s later then? I’ll have to dig it out …. in the meantime I’ll add a link in to your post…

    Cheers

    PS: Great Blog you have there BTW, lots of stuff I haven’t seen…

    I think that last comment is quite possibly sycophantic spam, but since it’s so complimentary It’s staying….
