THIS is the premier site for high-quality replica and facsimile dust-jackets for your Edgar Rice Burroughs collection. These jackets have been praised and added to collections all over the world.
Since 1999 I’ve been working to digitally restore and reconstruct the entire run of dust-jackets for all the Edgar Rice Burroughs first editions. My reconstruction of the A.C. McClurg Tarzan of the Apes dust-jacket is the only letterpress-printed facsimile of that piece and is printed on paper which matches the color and weight of the original first edition dust-jacket. It is a true art-quality replica of the highly sought after dust-jacket and comes complete with a notice of authentication. You can read more about it here.
As announced on The Back Flap Blog, I have signed an agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. to produce reproductions of all the original dust-jackets for their books published between 1931 and 1948. This means that I will have access to as much of the actual original art as they have in their archives and that the cover paintings can be produced with all the detail possible with modern digital techniques.
The first dust-jackets will be the complete series of all four of the Venus series. They will be produced with the same exacting standards as all the other Recoverings reproductions, with scans of the original cover paintings and type set to match the original jackets.
I've just finished The Macaulay Company first edition of The Girl From Hollywood. Though this is the final dust-jacket of the early publishers, it was actually the second of ERB's non-series books to be printed. Look for it right after "The Mucker" at the top of the Non-series page.
Don't forget to take a look at the Art Prints page with my detailed restoration of the cover painting for Tarzan at the Earth's Core. This archival gicleé print is a full 24 by 17 inches on 68lb. Red River UltraPro Satin paper.
