GEORGE ZIEL CHECKLIST

BALLANTINE

U2285 THE WATCH BELOW – White, 1966.

 

 

PRAISE THE HUMAN SEASON

by Don Robertson, Ballantine 24526, 1975.

24567 THE DARK SIDE OF PARADISE – Wagner, 1975. Some Ziel collectors count this as his worst cover, and I have to agree that horse head could use some retouching. With the possible exception of Leonardo da Vinci, no artist has ever painted a masterpiece on every single try. 

 

24614 APPLESHAW – Damien, 1975.

24615  THE OPAL LEGACY – Kent, Oct 1975. Birthstone Gothic #10. Although it appears several different artists did this “Birthstone Gothic” series in 1975, I believe that the 12 of the covers for 1976’s “Zodiac Gothic” series below were all painted by George Ziel.

MAKE A WISH

by Don Robertson, Ballantine 26051, 1979.

ON THE BEACH
by Nevil Shute, Ballantine 27134, 1978.
This bestseller has been reprinted many
times, but the 1978 Ballantine featured
this cover by George Ziel. The broken doll
is a haunting image that identifies the artist.
