Sorry for the lack of posts: a virus scan wrecked my Windows installation, and in fixing that my browser seems to have gone haywire, meaning any attempts to upload an image to this blog make the whole thing crash--a bit of a problem for a blog based on pictures. Describing the book covers without images isn't quite the same.
To show that I'm not dead, I'm surreptitiously posting this brief thing from my workplace. Please enjoy this tasteful French book cover from 1974 (taken from here, a blog full of this sort of thing).
Click for bigger--if you dare! More Opta here, though sadly none quite so tacky as this.
