Now that does look interesting. Note that there is a shop as well, as be prepared to part with some cash :-)

Just be warned that the co-owner is...   cantankerous.  I'm gonna leave it at that and ask that folks not delve into too much of a socio-political discussion here, other than to just look it up yourself off-site and decide for yourself what you think.

You also might want to swing by Stockbridge, Massachusetts where the Holmes Basic Set Cover painting is currently on display.

I love that cover. I still spend a good amount of time flipping through the various AD&D 1ed. Monster Manuals looking at the art.

I accepted that as a given.  :)
