Sluggings, Slayings, Murder and Mayhem - The Magic of McLoughlin
Without doubt the pre-eminent UK exponent of seedy, exquisitely lit pulp style artwork. No one else comes close to Denis McLoughlin's inventiveness and ability to create book covers for detective fiction that hits you between the eyes.
All his work was great but his "noire fiction" covers (imo) were by far the best of an already impressive body of work that this wonderful and modest artist created over a sixty year career.
