His Satanic Majesty has a request.
Kisses from Satan was printed in Great Britain by Jarrold Publishing in 1966, and you can also think of it as Kisses from S.A.T.A.N., because the plot pits hero David Grant against the Society for Activation of Terror, Anarchy and Nihilism. The baddies at S.A.T.A.N. have sent a Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan to Europe to spread hate throughout the continent, and they simultaneously hope to start a new Civil War in the U.S. This is the fourth David Grant novel, and S.A.T.A.N. figures in the others, as well. The art here is by Eileen Walton. We featured her before, and you can see that here.

Eileen Walton proves she’s just as talented as her sister.
Last week we shared a group of book covers that used shadows or silhouettes of Venetian blinds as a theme. We stumbled across one more on Flickr—George B. Mair’s 1964 North African spy adventure Miss Turquoise. It’s the second of his books starring David Grant, a character he based loosely on himself. The art is by Eileen Walton, sister of illustrator Barbara Walton, and she shows that talent ran in the family with this lovely moonlit tableau for Jarrold Publishing. Thanks to the original uploader, and see the other covers of this ilk here.
