Journal of the Western Slope Index: Cover Art

Author, Title and Subject index.

Cover Art

Thirty-four artists drew the covers for the 63 issues of the Journal.  The cover for each issue depicted an article from that issue.  Three times a cover was repeated when a long article was broken into two issues.

The artists included MC/MSC students and faculty as well as community people or family and friends of an author.  Eleven artists drew 2 or more covers.  The most were done by Jack Murray - 9 and Charlie Hardy - 6.
