For Some, the Pages Are Mere Filler
Posted by: Keir Graff

A nice way to take a quick break without leaving your desk: The Cover Art Gallery (found via Edward Champion and Kitabkhana):

I love books. I love the smell of ‘em, the feel of ‘em, and I love the look of ‘em. In fact, I even like to read them, but that’s another story. The main preoccupation of this site is the covers of books. Mainly books I’ve picked up in charity shops, or at carboot sales or jumble sales, even some that I’ve found on the ground. Here you will find hard-boiled detectives, scantily-clad floozies, unlikely space-ships, grotesque aliens, bizarre religious images, beatnik shockers, hell’s angels, skinheads, barbarian heroes, and horrifying monsters… among others.

…and Finnish pulp fiction, natch.

I wish this were a little bit easier to browse, but what’s a few mouse clicks between bad-cover-art aficianados?
