Learned something new today: Logan's Run with cover art by Mercer Mayer

You learn something new every day. Today I learned that Mercer Mayer did the dust jacket illustration (and title page art... same picture in black and white) for the first printing of Logan's Run by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson (Dial Press, 1967). This is probably going to be another book on the "Oh-my-goodness, I'm-never-going-to-be-able-to-afford-that" list of Mercer Mayer related books. $45.00 - $400.00... OUCH.

I've actually wanted to read William F. Nolan's books and I've been seeking out a nice hardcover for this title. Now, I HAVE to find THIS version. Hopefully, I'll be able to find an ex-library one with the whole dust jacket for cheap.

...and, yes, this is not a children's novel. Ha ha.
