|Stephen Lavis | Sir Dunstan| The Tasks of Tantalon|
Stephen Lavis illustrations for Steve Jacksons Tasks of Tantalon are uniformly superb, mixing Froudian goblins, Arthurian grandeur and fairy-tale whimsy, and skulls with eyeballs and rats on. Unlike Mcraigs Deathtrap Dungeon illustrations, these really do contain the clues to solving the game. The lever-pulley puzzle above particually satisfying to my 10 year old mind tracing the rope around. working out the turns and spins and counter-weights, then dropping the poor knight into the fondue anyway, but at least knowing know it was the other number that was needed.
Stephen Lavis created covers for the Narnia series of books in the 80's and is a childrens book illustrator.
