Book Cover Throwback: Heinlein

This week’s Book Cover Throwback is from Robert Heinlein.

Besides being an amazing story, the cover to this book is just breathtakingly gorgeous. I honestly miss the days when book covers were works of art, rather than the same photoshopped, stock-photo girl who’s on the other ten books released this month.

That’s not to say that you can’t make art with stock photos, but there’s a higher art involved in painting the cover to a novel, especially one as good as Heinlein‘s Stranger in a Strange Land.
