A Gloriously Awful Cover Art Caption Contest
January 5, 2012 § 2 Comments
Earlier today, I went to my grandmother’s house to sort through her book collection in preparation for selling the unwanted books in an estate sale later this month. While I was going through the 700-800 books that she owned, I selected 12 books to keep per family agreement. Most of these are SF/Fantasy books from the 1960s, including four Ace Double and while some of the authors are well-renowned today, I was struck by how strange and often cheesy much of the cover art was. Although I am no Good Show, Sir, I thought it might be fun to post images of each book (even the non-horrid ones) and allow readers to write the funniest, wittiest, most damning comments on the covers that they can. So without further ado, fourteen images of sixteen covers on twelve books (yes, that really is what I said). Enjoy?
