  1. Ms. Reeves,
    Your website is without a doubt the most fantastic, well-researched and important book cover site I have come across. I have never had the pleasure of extensively collecting Penguin covers, but have always found them to be an Art form among themselves. I have and do collect the book covers of Alvin Lustig (and had the honor of meeting his widow, Mrs. Lustig Cohen) and the works of Roy Kuhlman and I know how much work and time needs to go into a real collection. Congratulations on yours and your work on it -it is simply unsurpassed by anything I've ever seen or come across.
