Book Cover Monday: Undercover Pyramids

31 October, 2011

In April 1948, some Fellow in Newcastle took it upon himself to make this Pelican Paperback into a hardback.  One is not quite sure why—was it a repair or a precaution—but the amateur attempt at book binding is curious and charming. 

Such handiwork of amateurs, reminds the Author is this fantastic blog of ‘antiques with inventive repairs’, Past Imperfect.

Many thanks to Sean Blanchet who introduced the author to Past Imperfect.
