Just a couple of follow-ups. The first is to my post about Tamara de Lempicka's paintings being used on the front of certain fascist screeds: well, here's another, forthcoming in Penguin Modern Classics.
Secondly, the more I think about the Barnaby Hall covers showcased in the last post, the more I think that the majority of his Vintage US covers are served badly by the way the Hall photo is made such a relatively small part of the cover. Compare the originals with these variations I quickly knocked up.
What do you think?
UPDATE: Barnaby Hall himself has commented on this post with some very interesting information, and a link to a fascinating online exhibition of book cover design--for more details, see here.
