    A *Salvador Dalí* wraparound cover of In Concert?

    Colour me surprised: it is my understanding that the
    Dalí Foundation
    is not exactly — check out the
    Times Online article of June 6, 2010
    — easy to deal with, to put it mildly.

    I certainly hope that Centipede Press have gotten their permission: this is a foundation that stops Hollywood from making a major movie about Dalí’s life, after all.

    Ooh. I do love the Tems.

  6. Caleb Wilson says:

    The Centipede Press edition of “The Deadly Percheron” by John Franklin Bardin has a painting by Dali on the cover as well. I Haven’t gotten around to reading my copy of that one yet, though it looks interesting.

  7. Steve Tem says:

    I was quite surprised as well. I wasn’t part of the negotiations for the Dali, the Max Ernst, or the Chagall rights–that was all Jerad at Centipede, of course, but it is my understanding through him that the various foundations involved are a bit more reasonable when it comes to limited editions of a few hundred copies primarily of interest to a small, scholarly or somewhat scholarly audience. I doubt permission could have been obtained for a mass edition from a major house for any remotely reasonable fee.

    Also, these are simple reproductions–no commentary on Dali at all.

    Thanks for the info, Steve!
