Today in The Rap Sheet, contributor Jim Napier writes fondly about the 1943 novel Laura, by Vera Caspary. To illustrate that essay, I used the cover from the most recent Vintage UK paperback edition. However, Laura has a long printing history, and at least two other, previous editions are worth celebrating on this page.
The front above comes from the 1961 Dell paperback version, illustrated by Gino Forté, while the one below was released by Popular Library in 1950, with cover art by Sam Cherry.
