Friday Funnies: The Moon Maid

Written by Burl on July 23rd, 2010


This was a cover concept sketch for the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel “The Moon Maid,” among the best of ERB’s canon. The lighter gravity of the hollow Moon allowed the denizens to neutralize their weight with hydrogen balloons, which in turn allowed them to fly short distances with artificial wings. But a race of centaur-like creatures made venturing into the Moon’s inner wilderness a chancy proposition. At any rate, the book cover proposal didn’t proceed behind this sketch, made for ERB, Inc.
