I donít know how into vintage publishing anyone else here is, but if you are and youíre reading this, please share covers you like.

I donít have the space to store vintage paperbacks, but I do have a couple of neat reference guides: Paperbacks from Hell, about horror titles from the 1970s and Ď80s, by Grady Hendrix; and The Hooded Gunman, specialising in mystery novels published by Collins Crime Club, by John Curran.

I love great book covers, I would buy books from thrift stores solely based on their covers,

This one I just love and have had the book for ages. The blue and the photo is so cool.

...also love the designs for The Rosy Crucifixion series from the 60s/70s. They looked better all scratched and used up than they do new.

It's been sitting on my bookshelf for at least 15 years, though I haven't read it yet.
