Dragon Magazine #19

Dragon Magazine 19, from October of 1978. Not exactly a Halloween themed cover. Still, I’ve long been fascinated by it. First in the Art of Dragon. Back then, because it was such a small reproduction, I always thought it was just a weird painting, like the one on Dragon 29. Now that I have a full size real life copy, I’m not so sure. It looks like it is maybe a photograph of a root mass that happens to look like a dragon, maybe using some weird techniques, like Kirlian photography? I don’t know. Art of Dragon credits it to Dale Carson, who I’ve never heard of. The magazine offers no explanation. It is weird. I like it.

The best stuff inside is the ads, for Judges Guild, for the Giants modules.
