Export Publishing Enterprises Artists Part I - Sid Dyke (1)

Sid Dyke signed more covers for the early Canadian paperback publisher Export Publishing Enterprises than any other artist, 17. There is very little that I have found about Dyke. He is not listed in the Index of Canadian Illustrators but is in the Toronto City Directory for two years - 1948 and 1949. The listing reads "Sydney L. Dyke, commercial artist Bomac Engravers, residence Port Credit." A listing for a work of art (1967) says he was born in Calgary in 1916.

Here are the two westerns he did for Export.
