Darryl Ponicsan: The Last Detail

Darryl Ponicsan's The Last Detail was published by Signet in July 1971 and is the story of 3 sailors and their 2 guards who are escorting them to prison. They make every kind of detour that ends in disaster.

Allan Kass creates a unique and unusual (for him) cover of a sailor and two of his guards. It's shadowy and stark. I like that it feels like a moment someone might glimpse if they walked by them. Definitely a different feel for a Kass cover than what he usually produced.
