Dolgov, Boris

Tagged: Art

(?   -?   ) US illustrator, sometimes signing himself just Dolgov, of whom almost nothing is known except that he worked in New York on Illustrations for the Pulps, serving alongside such artists as Virgil Finlay and Hannes Bok at Weird Tales during the 1940s and early 1950s; his middle initial may have been "I". He and Bok did some work together, signing it with the joint pseudonym Dolbokov. With or without Bok, although Dolgov worked for various magazines, such as Future and Science Fiction Quarterly, he is most associated with Weird Tales; there, his five covers are outshone by his copious interior illustrations. By the time Dolgov stopped illustrating, his friend Hannes Bok had already departed the field a couple of years earlier.

Perhaps his only book cover was that for A E van Vogt's Destination: Universe! (coll 1952). [JGr]
