This classically composed Frazetta piece is rich with subtle shadows and textures that draws the viewer into the world of Barsoom, and was in no small part responsible for the resurgence in popularity of this Edgar Rice Burroughs novel that was the first in the series and originally published as a serialized adventure way back in 1912! Originally appearing as "Under the Moons of Mars" in The All-Story magazine, it wasn't collected into a novel and given the name A Princess of Mars until 1917. The series was republished several times over the next few decades, but Frazetta's is the most striking cover for the novel, and easily one of the most recognizable and memorable pieces of science-fiction art in history.
