booklet is the first in a series of booklets that will eventually cover
most every monster that inhabits a lair. Lurid Lairs is a much-needed
gaming aid brought to you by all the Gremlins at Judges Guild.
About the cover art:
This is a very early career piece by
the artist, from his time at the roleplaying game publisher
Judges Guild (1978-1979). This would have been considered
an experimental piece by the artist. It was intended to be
printed as a duo-tone (half tone black and white and half tone
warm brown). The goal was to create a visually interesting
piece of art in a different visual style from other product, but
do it quickly and cheaply.
