______________________________

Illustration by Hubert Rogers, for L. Ron Hubbard’s story “To The Stars” (p. 87)  This is the “original” art as published in Astounding.  Unusually for Rogers, one character – the man – has been rendered as a “positive” image, while his lady friend is depicted in “inverted” tones.

The same illustration as above, but digitally “inverted” and enhanced using Photoshop, to make the image of the woman clearer.  Notice that Rogers has included his initials – “H.R.” – on the park bench.
