Jack Faragasso has painted hundreds of covers for paperback books for over 30 years mainly in the science- fiction and gothic romance genre, which have been distributed worldwide. Most of his science fiction sketches are in brilliant gouache color. Usually Mr. Faragasso submitted these sketches to the art director for approval. When one was approved a final larger painting was executed following the sketch. These sketches are approximately 7 1/8" x 4 1/4" which is the size of the paperback cover. They are matted with black mats with a white inset. Overall size 14" x 10"
