This piece was used as the cover of John Shirley's book, Eclipse Corona, Warner Books, 1990.
"It couldn't happen again -- not in your lifetime, you say. If that's what you think, you'd better take another look around. Media manipulation has become mind control, and mind control an art. Secret treaties have been made and conspiracies laid in back rooms, on the Internet, and in secret laboratories. The power of the Second Alliance has coalesced, and terrorism has become institutionalized. New concentration camps bring 'ethnic cleansing' to a terrifying level. Your only hope is the New Resistance, regular people bound together by the truth and a single purpose -- to keep this secret darkness from becoming mankind's total eclipse."
A copy of the book is included in this lot. From the Frank Collection.
Estimate: $1,500 - $2,000.
This piece has been framed to an overall size of 32 x 42 in., and the art is in Excellent condition.
