The following artwork is from the book, Far Lands Other Days. It collects short stories written by Weird Tales alumnus, E. Hoffman Price.
My introduction to this book was when it was handed to me by George the first time I visited his studio. I was bowled over. I was already a fan of his artwork, but never before had I seen his work so beautifully reproduced. The full page illustrations (more than 30!) showcased Evans' drawing skill much more than the space limitations of his comic strip work ever did.
Years later I was lucky enough to come across a copy of Far Lands Other Days at the San Diego Comic-Con. Suffice it to say the dealer had a very easy sell. With how quick I agreed to the first price he uttered, I'm sure he's still kicking himself that he didn't go higher...
