Thrift Shop Book Covers: "Westworld"

Westworld, by Michael Crichton, was published as a paperback original by Bantam in 1974, which is the very edition that caught my eye. The cover is dominated by Yul Brynner shedding his humanity to reveal the robot beneath. The artist: Unknown (to me at least).

The first sentences:

A desert landscape at dawn, all muted grays. The desert stretches for miles with no sign of life.
Westworld is a film written and directed by Michael Crichton. This book features a Foreword by Saul David—Hollywood screen writer, producer and man behind the film adaptation of Logan’s Runa very interesting essay, “Shooting Westworld”, by Michael Crichton, and the original screenplay.
