Spare The Rod Michael Croft

These are to covers for the second and third Panther editions, could there possibly be anyone who thinks Max Bygraves adds anything to the cover. I don’t see him as a British Glenn Ford.

Spare the Rod – Michael Croft 2nd edition

This in my view is the better cover from 1958, I presume it predated the film. Posted, poste haste, to any UK location



Spare the Rod – Michael Croft 3rd Edition

The 2nd edition cover was painted by Josh Kirby, this cover is unsigned, would you sign it when you had to do the 50’s equivalent of photo shop and drop Max into the frame. Though it is the “film” cover so someone might want me to post it to a UK address.
