60s 70s Book Cover Design
After watching Spartacus: Blood and Sand, I went in search of the Spartacus (the history) and was directed to Howard Fast's novel that was turned into the original movie Spartacus directed by Stanley Kubrick. Isn't this cover lovely??
Everyday we get donations here at the library, and sometimes we receive the mother lode of pulp novel goodness. Here are a few selections that we received this week - there was more but they'd been sent to the bookseller in the basement before I could get my camera.
I love this, but now, I have Kate Bush singing "Wuthering Heights" stuck in my head.
OK, not a pulp, but still a nice cover - not as nice as the very bawdy cover on the second copy of Droll Stories that was received in the box with this, but still...
