Some time ago Pete Von Sholly sent along the above images and asked, "This [Lost World cover] may be familiar to you and many on your blog (be the first one on your blog!) and it certainly looks like the same artist (Tom Beecham) who painted the first "Kona" [top], maybe the first couple? What do you think"?
If anyone knows for sure please drop me a line.
