One of the sad things behind the diminishing of the printed novel is the parallel reduction in printed book covers and dustjackets. Less books, less book art. But there is yet plenty of great art around.
Artist Jack Sorenson has long made his living by his western art, being widely featured in print and magazine articles over the years. This month his "Cowboy Christmas Eve" is the featured art on the cover of Western Horseman Magazine. His prints can be found at many on-line institutions across the web including Elegant Horse Pictures at this link. His original art can be found at the Joe Wade Fine Art Gallery in Sante Fe.
