Hi Steve,
Just been speaking to Gordon King about PANs 1965/66 series of Mazo de la Roche book covers as I noticed you credited him with painting 'Variable Winds at Jalna'
I have the original of this and wanted him to confirm it was his because it is not signed. He says it is not one of his and he only painted 4 of the 16 covers namely 'Young Renny', 'The Master of Jalna', 'Jalna' and 'Mary Wakefield'
Cheers, Tim K

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the correction. I'll make sure the right images are credit. Of course, that leaves us with the question if it wasn't Gordon, who did those other covers?

Best,

Steve
