A PRINCESS OF MARS
From Michael Whelan's Works of Wonder:
"I have a special fondness for The Martian Tales by Edgar Rice Burroughs, ever since I first read them in my early teens. That is also when I first did drawings based on them and even used some of my illustrations to win acceptance to the Rocky Mountain School of Art at age 15...I was surprised and thrilled to be offered the project...my aim was to do the most accurate depictions of Burroughs' Barsoom yet realized.
Cover art for the first book in the series."
