Books Do Furnish A Blog

If you spend more time staring at a screen than you do staring at well-stocked, improving shelves, then this fantastic collection of 60 years of Pelican covers might bring you pleasure. I want to read this one, this one, this one and this one (and, to be honest, pretty much all the others, including this one).

No reason why you can't read them - one of my favourite sites is www.abebooks.co.uk , where second had bookdealers advertise their wares under one name. All of the books you selected are easily available for prices between 51p and £7.

Since I'm writing a dissertation about the correlation between avant-garde art movements and coinciding eras of Penguin/Pelican book covers, this has been a big help.

Any more links relating to this?
