“Lament For Four Virgins” cover Illustration by Charles Binger (1950). Binger was born in London, England on October 12th, 1907. Young Charles trained in the family fine tailoring and dressmaking business, but never quite took to it. Instead, he would make drawings all over the pattern pieces, which infuriated his parents. Charles wanted to be an artist, and attended St. Martin’s School of Art, The Slade School and the Bolt Court, London, where he studied all the fine art techniques of the era. He died in 1974.
