We have you covered…
Today’s post features artwork spanning seven decades of book publishing – luxuriate yourselves in this selection of book covers plucked straight from the shelves of TVTA!
Some titles will be instantly recognisable, others quite obscure, some have been adapted for stage, film or television, but all are equal here in having wonderful covers to bind their tales.
Enjoy your book.
Thank you for staring longingly at the cover with us 🙂

How lovely! Yesterday morning in the TVTA mail room, while opening envelopes containing our usual assortment of comics, catalogues, adverts and, erm, bills, I managed to find a surprise gift just for little old me!
Wow, thanks Wooof! I can’t believe you ordered me a set of Chet Phillips Vintage-style Travel Poster Postcards!
Chet Phillips is a digital artist, and you can check out his work here
In the meantime, feast your peepers on the the cool pressie Wooof got me – six vintage-style British and Scottish Tourism posters, upon which not just a splendid tour of Britain is promised, but something else lurking in the scenery!
As always, thanks for looking 🙂 Thanks Chet for making some wonderful art! And thanks Wooof for the cool gift 🙂
