As it turns out, Norman Saunders was an artist I was familiar with, without having known his name. He was the artist responsible for much of the artwork on the Topps trading card series "Mars Attacks" - known to more people these days through the not particularly good film.

But Norman Saunders is an artist with an incredible amount of published work - he was prolific in the pulp field, a field that I am fond of. He produced covers in most of the genres of this field - westerns, detective stories, science fiction, men's adventure, Nazi exploitation. But he also produced covers for magazines, and did a lot of work for the army while enlisted during WWII.

The text is written by his son David, and gives a brief, but interesting, capsule history of his life, but the real reason for owning this book is the hundreds (possibly even over a thousand) reproductions of his artwork.
