Angling for Extra Credit

While speaking last week with a teacher friend of mine, I was reminded that I’d intended to update my collection of back-to-school covers, originally posted on this page in 2015. With classrooms again filling across the United States this month, I wanted to add a dozen paperback fronts I have come across during 2021 to my already extensive collection, bringing the total to a whopping 108!

Included among those supplementary selections are the two covers posted here: Eve’s Apple, by Ronald Simpson (Monarch, 1961), with art by Harry Barton; and Campus Queen, by Ursula Grant (Midwood, 1966), featuring an illustration by the great Paul Rader.
