We are pleased to present another fantastic print from artist Don Brautigam to The Covers Collection. Previously, we have published Brautigam’s cover art from The Stand, Night Shift, Skeleton Crew, and The Bachman Books. This month, we are delighted to offer the art that appeared on the 1st edition cover of The Running Man.
Following Don Brautigam’s work on the 1980 paperback release of Stephen King’s novel The Stand, it is no surprise Signet Books sought out Brautigam for The Running Man, the fourth novel published under King’s pseudonym Richard Bachman. Published in 1982 as a paperback original, first editions of The Running Man are highly coveted. To find one in fine condition is a true rarity, making it nearly impossible to appreciate Brautigam’s magnificent work. Now, this cover art is available for the first time in its original form and without cover text. The Running Man has never looked so good.
