John Harris (????)

A couple of paintings by John Harris.

If anyone can pin a date on them or where they were used I would be most grateful and will of course update the blog accordingly.

Here's a interesting update following Michel Van's comment that the bottom images was used as the cover of Inherit The Stars by James P Hogan.  Now this is curious because that's exactly what the image reminded me of when I first saw it...
...but I never once thought that the same book might have two such similar covers.  However, there it is...
...the proof in the publishing.  The first was by Darrell K Sweet which I had previously blogged as being from 1977 so I'm going to take a punt on that being the original as Michel Van dates the John Harris cover at 1989.....unless anyone knows different?
Cheers for that.


  1. the second painting is John Harris book cover
    for "Inherit the stars" by James P. Hogan
    that for the publisher Grafton Collins, London in 1989.
    ISBN 0-58620487-3

  2. If you have not read them, they are quite good for their time.

    1. I'll have to add it to the massive; get round to one day, pile but thanks for the recommend, William.
