Artwork of the Day: Hot Date (by Raymond Johnson)


by Raymond Johnson

I’m always a little confused by these covers that feature a new title for a previously published book but which also include the old title.  If they liked Shame Girl so much, why did they change the title to Hot Date?  If they didn’t like Shame Girl, why are they still letting everyone know that was the original title?  Hot Date does sound and look better than Shame Girl.  There’s not much shame to be found on this cover.

This cover is from 1949.  It was done by Raymond Johnson, who has been featured many times on this site and who will be undoubtedly be featured more in the future.
