Here, gathered together for your enjoyment, are all the images in the BookScans database pertaining some favorite authors ... okay, okay ... MY favorite authors. Maybe they're yours, too.
The lists are not complete. The database is still missing some key issues, but I think you'll enjoy what's here. Also, please keep in mind that the database does not go beyond the 1970's. Most of the authors here are obviously still in print.
The "LiPs & DiDs" folder shows paperback and pulp covers featuring Ladies in Peril & Damsels in Distress.
"THE Gothic Cover" almost qualifies for LiPs & DiDs, but not quite. It is, in fact, one of the oddest artistic phenomenon illustrated on the website.
"Lesbiana" is an immensely popular genre for vintage paperback collectors.
"MAD," of course, contains books featuring craziness from MAD Magazine, dating back to 1954.
Each of these "Genre Group" links will lead you to another page, which will explain the topic and provide a portal to the covers.
And ... THE RAREST GENRE. Can YOU guess what it is?
(It makes sense if you think about it.)
