Judge A Book’s Cover By Its Cover

Roger Hane (1939–1974) was an illustrator of paperback books, commercial advertising campaigns, and record albums, known for his surreal, fanciful art. During his eleven-year professional career, Hane produced over three hundred illustrations. He painted the covers of the 1970 Collier-Macmillan editions of CS Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia books

which means he’s the greatest illustrator of book covers EVER cause they is was are the greatest book covers EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

when wees was youngs, our mom forced us to go to the library, and every damns trip we made, we’d stare at these here there Hane Narnia covers 9ever, wondering what magic lied within.  of course we didn’t bother to ever actually open the books and read em, cause how could the contents be betterer than them covers?????
