Scanning the Globe

I must admit that my usual focus, when it comes to the covers of vintage novels, is American and British titles. But yesterday, Spinetingler Magazine’s Brian Lindenmuth pointed me to the excellent Vintage Irish Book Covers blog, which appears to be a project of Dublin graphic designer Niall McCormack.

Should you be interested in more international book fronts, check out this Web site featuring Czech book covers of the 1920s and ’30s; Spanish Book Covers, which offers detectives, masked gangsters, pin-ups, skeletons, and zombies; and French Book Covers, a page of provocative designs that may not always be safe for opening at work.
