It’s a Two-fer Tuesday – 1950s Ray Bradbury Bantam Paperbacks

Good Show Sir Comments:

#1. Paperback sales are down last quarter in Ohio, Alabama and California. Do something creative with the covers to get our numbers back up.

#2. Passive-aggressive cover artist thinks Bradbury stories are boring

Published 1951, 1954

You might remember one of these from here.

It has been a while since we’ve had an Honourable Mention post, so following are some of the recent doozies that didn’t meet our strict, fiercely-enforced rules for cover submissions. Enjoy!

Doctor PooClick for larger image

Leah Comments: I know it’s a tie-in, but this is definitely worthy of an Honorable Mention. That lettering is not actually black, it is bright orange metallic foil. I think it says a great deal that the picture is an accurate depiction of the featured aliens.

Leah Comments: Another Honorable-Mention-worthy tie-in. Working title: ‘Attack of the Fifty-Foot Fop’.
