PURE GENIO
Franco Picchioni is bad as in good.


Franco Picchioni's hits keep coming. Above is another cover from the respected Italian artist, this time for Georges H. Boskero's Il genio del male, number twenty-two in the crime series Il Cerchio Rosso from Edizioni MA-GA, 1965. The title translates to “evil genius.” In terms of Picchioni, we'll certainly go with genius. See more from him starting at this link.

THE DARK SIDE OF VENUS
She's usually the goddess of love but this has been a bad week.


We meant to get right back to Italian illustrator Franco Picchioni, but in typical fashion it's taken us a few years. But today you see another of his nice creations, this time for Georges H. Boskero's Le Veneri ardenti, which translates to The Fiery Venus. It was published in 1966 by Edizioni MA-GA for its Il Cerchio Rosso series, a series of thrillers that featured some of the best Italian cover art of the period. We'll show you some of those in a bit and at the same time revisit Franco's art. In the meantime, check out what he did with a James Bond cover here.

LOVE AND LET LIVE
Jane Bond, licensed to thrill.


We thought we’d bring back Georges H. Boskero/Bosckero today. Working for Edizioni MA-GA again, he authored Com licenza d’amare, which of course means, “licensed to love.” It was the debut entry for MA-GA’s Jane Bond series, and an eyecatching entry it was.

TOWER AND INFERNO
The city never rests and neither does she.


This cover featuring a beautiful nocturnal vision of Paris and an overheated femme fatale could have fit into two of our previous cover collections—either the group featuring Venetian blinds or the Eiffel Tower set. If you have a moment you should take a look at those. You’ll see amazing cover art. The book above comes from Rome based Edizioni MA-GA and was written for their FBI Story series by Georges H. Bosckero, a pseudonym used—along with Joe H. Bosk, Kriss Leclerc, Georges H. Boskero and possibly other variations—by Giorgio Boschero. The year on this is 1960 and the artist is, sadly, unknown.
