Holmes D&D art found in crate
D&D cover art rediscovered! In case you haven't seen this already -on blogs and Twitter, this very famous piece of original D&D cover art was found in a crate in the Wizards of the Coast warehouse. At least we now know that not all art collected by TSR was skipped (which is part of Jeff Dee’s back story for recreating his own art from Deities & Demigods…). Being the cover for the popular Holmes D&D Basic rules means that this piece of art has a very special place in the heart of older players -that blue rulebook and/or box set being their introduction to the roleplaying hobby.
