One of my favorite blogs is Mr. Door Tree's Golden Age Comic Book Stories. While the site often does post some great vintage comic art, it's actually more likely to sport a great selection of vintage illustration. A recent post included this wonderful pulp cover -- in not so wonderful condition. Because I was so taken with it, I decided it would be a good candidate for a little Photoshop clean up. Since it's not a high resolution scan, I only went so far with the piece -- but I think I came up with something that allows you to appreciate the incredible image without the distraction of the damage and wear of the original cover. Anyhow -- just a little time spent with Photoshop when I needed a break from my real work -- and something old is new again.
That's fantastic! A masterful restoration.
Did you restore the text piece by piece or were you able to match the font and colors and recreate it?
Thanks, John. I just cleaned up the text that was there. If you look at the piece any larger than 100% you can see it's a little rough around the edges....
