Artwork of the Day: Dead Lion (by John Fernie)

Six women wanted to kill him! I wonder what he did? According to the plot synopsis that I found online, Dead Lion was first published in 1969 and it is about the murder of a London literary critic “whose viperous pen destroyed many a reputation.”

This cover was done by John Fernie, a Scottish illustrator who also designed the posters for several Broadway shows and who was an avid car racer in his spare time.
