Born in 1947, George Underwood studied at Beckenham Art School in 1963. During his studies, Underwood became more and more interested in music and pursued a career in that field. Along with life long friend David Bowie he made one record (The King Bees ) and also a solo record under the name Calvin James.

Continuing my exploration of cover art, today I take a look at magazines, specifically the infamous Saturday Evening Post. But first a little history:
Advances in printing technology during the Industrial Revolution allowed for the work of talented illustrators to be reproduced with increasing quality. Early publishers focused much of their attention on the magazine’s cover, which like today, is a big selling attraction. Eye-catching covers increase circulation, and ensure the magazines continuation.
