Blind man about to get a surprise in the Please Touch MuseumClick for full image

Perry Comments: I actually rather like the artwork for this junior, abridged edition (even the title’s abridged!), but remain intrigued by the gentleman depicted at centre. Either he was already blind, or, assuming he’s one of the multitude blinded the night before, clearly thought it important to locate/don dark glasses prior to venturing outside!

Published 1973

Mangraa’s Art Direction: What? The cover is due TOMORROW? OK, um.. a planet, but make it space-agey. Like that Epcot ball thing, just don’t get us sued. Something new … vampire bat spaceship! Perfect. Slap some starbursts and a Jupiter on there, and we can get back to drinking.

Saxy Stevenson’s Art Direction: It’s about an alien, a cute one, you know the kind of one you’d love to kiss, cuddle, stroke, bath etc. Bath… wait that’s a great idea, like with bubbles and maybe some caring hands around it and some big gremlin eyes. Perfect!

There is nothing in this world that makes anything look better than shiny gold highlights around text and generally shiny boxes around huge fonts. What will you draw? Oh uh, three guys on a mountain edge, don’t forget the magic! Fantasy isn’t fantasy without a magic fireball or two.
