Little Known Facts About Mort Künstler

Rebel

...Mort Künstler did the cover for the popular novel Rebel by Bernard Cornwell?

The painting was done in 1992 and called First to the Guns, depicting action at the Battle of Wilsons Creek. It appeared in the Mort Künstler book, Images of the Civil War that same year. Editors at Harper Collins saw the painting and asked Künstler if he would allow it to appear on the cover of Rebel. After minor changes to make the painting more accurately fit the story, it was published in 1993. The book was a big success and became the first of the Starbuck Chronicles series!
