I'm trying not to turn this blog into the Tutis "Appreciation" Society, but commenter Gareth pointed out something I can't resist re-posting.

I only mention it because it appears to have influenced one of their D.H. Lawrence covers:
And an anonymous commenter also (mostly) solves the mystery of the pink thing from this post. "It's ... the character Sof' Boy in the comic by Archer Prewitt."
Sof' Boy is, and I quote from here, a "comic about a homeless, naive dough boy who happily lives in a crime- and filth-ridden urban neighborhood, surviving attacks by man and beast because he is made out of some kind of indestructible, infinitely elastic rubber." So it makes perfect sense to colour him pink and use him on the covers of classic novels.
