We are delighted to reveal another beautiful bonus print in The Covers Collection from the late Don Brautigam. This month, we have one of the highest anticipated and most requested covers; the art from the first US edition paperback of Night Shift.

The 1979 Signet paperback release of Night Shift features the first of many covers Brautigam would be hired to create for Stephen King. It is also one of his most iconic. The imagery of the eyes peering forth from the bandaged hand was inspired by King's short story "I Am the Doorway," which is included in this, his first ever short story collection.

A unique characteristic of the Night Shift first edition paperback is its stepback, or keyhole cover. Subsequent printings would reuse Brautigam's artwork, but the first edition is identified by the outermost front cover's "keyholes," which open up to a full page color stepback graphic underneath. Now, this magnificent piece of artwork can be enjoyed as a beautiful giclée print -- and you don't even need to line up the eyes!

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

Another Don Brautigam Art Print is coming home

The second paperback book I ever purchased was Night Shift. Like The Stand, I was captivated by the artwork on this book. The paperbacks released in the 70's and the 80's really captured the book's soul through its art. Looking back at it these now, the Brautigam covers have stood the test of time.


Wonderful piece as usual!

Night Shift

One of my all time favorites! Great job!


Once again Paul does a great service to the many unsung artists of the prime King publishing years by giving up the stunning Night Shift paperback cover from 1979 finally seen in it's unencumbered glory that the artist would have loved to see a new generation to admire his incredible work. As usual another top notch production from start to finish....
