Signets, or the Bathos of "Had I But Groaned"

A bit of a filler while I put together something of a little more substance; a bunch of old Signet covers, good and bad (both the covers and the books).

The "door between" is interesting.

Yes, the strange shape of the hinge and blade of the scissors (and the nude woman) almost makes it look like an old 1960s 'Playboy' cover.

Takes me back to high school. Every classic we'd read would be a Signet edition.

I will find some way to use that sexy drink cover. And soon.

Marc: I suspect you read more of the Jack London/Herman Melvilles than the Carter Browns?

Rex: But are you being sexually aroused by this picture?

"Had I But Groaned" = genius!
