Hank Janson

I think these cover artists are into shoulders in a big way “Noiquet” especially. I know it is not everyone’s taste but I don’t think Reginald can be beaten for the early Hank Janson covers. Did you know he also illustrated children’s books?

Hard Boiled or Private Detective

Not sure what to call this genre. Is Hard Boiled still in use?


Peter Cheyney; Dangerous Curves, White Circle are not exactly in the first division of cover design. I have too many Cheyney in stock to list, so if you are looking for something please contact me. I do try to check my email from time to time.

More Hank Janson

I had difficulty in choosing what covers to use, I have a strong feeling that the Amorous Captive cover is not historically accurate, the slave masters shoes don’t seem practical.

Todays Varied Listings

Agatha Christie, Bram Stoker and Arthur C Clarke not exactly books that you would put together especially if you add Leonard Cottrell and Poetry books.
