Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings wrote a meme that was bouncing around in various forms, a couple of weeks ago. And, it has had me thinking about book covers.
Which looks better? No cover at all? Slightly torn covers?
All four of these have at least a small tear in the cover and you can see the top two have spots at the top where a chunk is missing . I believe they were all published in the 1950's, so after 50 years you can expect some wear. Personally, I think a tear is a negligible thing when a slipcover adds so much beauty and character to a book. What do you think?
