Large 4to. 320pp., bibliography, glossary of terms, index. Illustrated throughout in color. Few realized in 1938 that a revolution was about to take place. A little book appeared in drugstores and on newsstands that would fit into the typical jacket pocket. It was just an experiment - and a year later, everyone was buying and reading them. From the glittering images of square-jawed cowboys to the gritty slum-dwellers of social realism, THE GREAT PAPERBACK is a bountiful museum of over 600 brilliant covers - a wonderful resource for readers, graphic designers, collectors, and anyone who loves paperbacks. Please note: Oversized volume: this book will require additional shipping for destinations outside the US; we will ship at cost.
