Ernest Chiriaka, R. I. P.

KILLER COVERS: Good-bye, Darcy: "Ernest Chiriaka, an American artist who--using the moniker “Darcy”--became famous during the mid-20th century for his often sexually suggestive but consistently captivating paperback book cover illustrations, passed away this last Tuesday, April 27, at his longtime home in Great Neck, New York. The son of Greek immigrants, he’d been born Anastassios Kyriakakos in May 1913, so was fast approaching 97 years old at the time of his death."
