On his blog Steve Winter mentioned that the cover art of the D&D Basic Set from 1977 had been found. The painting had been found in a WotC warehouse during a clean-out of old boxes.
This painting by Dave Sutherland served as the cover art for the 1977 Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set.
Oh how I would love to spend a day digging through boxes at the Wizards of the Coast headquarters/warehouse.
For more information about the Basic Set and its different printings, visit the Acaeum.
