Vintage Paperback Book Covers
Vintage paperback books have some of the best covers. Bookscans.com has a veritable treasure trove of some of the most gorgeous, lush paperback covers from the 40's all the way through the 60's. Check out the sexy digests section for what they refer to as "sleaze" covers. To me it looks more like romance and the stories were probably much less risque than what gets published today. The titles are pretty awesome too. Can you image Nora Robert's next book being titled Plaything of Passion or Abortive Hussy?
