GOING, GOING by Philip Larkin. (January 1972)
And that will be England gone, The shadows, the meadows, the lanes The guildhalls, the carved choirs. There’ll be books; it will linger on In galleries; but all that remains For us will be concrete and tyres.

The first of Edgar Rice Burroughs matian books has been made into a movie. I read all the books when I was 16 - they are a bit of a pot boiler but I really enjoyed them. I remember beginning taken by the covers by Michael Whelan http://www.michaelwhelan.com/. It was him that started me on the road to illustration. Some where I have a box of paintings done in his style.
