What a massive undertaking you have given us, and you even included one of our favourite undertakers Mr. Sowerberry.

If a picture is worth a 1000 words we have a novel here.

Thank you.

John (jdourg) | 1120 comments I love looking at the old covers, whether they be Dickens or Hardy or Henry James, etc.

A book I read not long ago took a look at paperbacks. I came upon it happenstance when I learned that the covers of John D. MacDonald's mystery/adventures were color-coded in a way (bright yellow, orange, etc.,) so that potential buyers in airports in the 1960s and 1970s would buy them because they "caught their eye."

I suppose marketing, in a way, has not changed a lot since Dickens and his illustrators.

This is the book I read.
