Happy Easter everyone. I thought a splash of retro colour may go down well from the collection of Vintage Book Covers that I’ve been amassing. I hope nobody minds too much : )  Let’s begin with a few mid century foreign titles.

I love these decorated books, some patterns belonging to King Penguin Book Covers.

Does anyone remember reading any of these titles when they were young ? I hope they might inspire some wonderful old memories. Do let me know.

Did anyone spot the covers by Alice and Martin Provensen, Leonard Weisgard and Edward Bawden ? Full marks if you did.

    These are great. In many public school libraries today, they eliminate any books with dark covers… just because of the color.
