Here's some great cover art I found. Some of the actual written material they are designed to promote may not be anything memorable but I love the illustrations!

A cover for an old Airfix model-making magazine:-



A cover of an old Model Airplane magazine



A cover from an old Boys adventure magazine



A cover from a 'Mens Interest' magazine called Mens Conquest which ran an article on the death of the Red Baron



More to come. Pete

Hi again,
heres some more as promised.

The cover of the film tie-in paperback novel for the WW1 air-war movie "Von Richtofen & Brown" which starred John Phillip-Law who passed away in May of this year.



Here's the great illustration for a paperback edition of Quentin Reynold's 'They fought for the Sky"



Here are the covers of two British war comics:-





And here's the cover for a hardcover novel called 'Death Flies High"



Enjoy. Pete

And a few more:-

One for the cover of a book "Air Warfare" by Robert Jackson



One for the cover of a book 'Signed with their Honour"



One for the cover of a book 'Air Aces of the 1914-18 War"



Another for the cover of Aces magazine



Finally, to take a more recent example, the superb illustrations for the Osprey series of WW1 aces and aircraft. There are a large number of them out now but to take my favourite example, this beautiful painting for the "Bristol F2B aces", done by Iain Wyllie who does the covers of all the Osprey aircraft books.



Have a look now as I don't know when Photobucket will delete these! Pete

This was actually done by Mark Postlewaite. I believe he has done the past 7 or 8 covers for this series.

Hi Russ,

Oops! Thanks for that, I didn't know Mark had been doing the recent ones. I don't actually own this one, I'm still waiting to see if one comes up on ebay at an affordable price as down here in Australia, they are very expensive to buy new. The store that sells them in Melbourne usually charges about $40 per copy.
I should have picked his style anyway. The Bristol one he has done is definitely my pick of the bunch.

Here's a few more covers:-







Great stuff! Pete

Pete,

The Airfix magazine cover is J.D. Carrick. It is also on the dust jacket for Harleyford's Marine Aircraft of the 1914-1918 War. No sense posting it as you've already shown the artwork.

some more that are handy

these covers are by Tony Theobold and they illustrate the covers of the first two books of a planned trilogy, i believe, by William Randle: fictional stories about a British soldier who makes his way into the RFC as agunner, then as a pilot , and i would recommend these books to all who are looking for a good read!!
