Nude in the Sand, by John Burton Thompson



I’ve been very impressed by the efforts of blogger Robert Deis, aka Subtropic Bob, to catalogue the numerous 20th-century book and magazine covers on which blond model Eva Lynd appeared. Impressed enough to already have written one piece here, and to now revisit the subject. His latest post on Lynd highlights John Burton Thompson’s Nude in the Sand, which was published by Beacon in 1959 and featured the model in a cover illustration by Al Rossi.

To learn (much) more about Lynd and her remarkable career, check out all of Deis’ posts on the subject in Men’s Pulp Mags.

Thanks very much for those kind words. Much appreciated! I thought you might like to know I recently did another post on MensPulpMags.com about Eva Lynd that mentions the Killer Covers site. It connects the dots between Eva, artist Al Rossi, mystery writers Manning Lee Stokes and Carter Brown, artist Robert McGinnis – and (last but not least) the Rocky Horror Show. Here's a direct link to the post - http://bit.ly/1hICthZ. Best regards... Bob Deis
