Another Robert Hale retro cover. These are just so different from the pulp style covers prevelant in the USA at the time that they really stand out. First of all, the girl is drawn as if she were on the cover of a teenage romance novel. She is coy, but there is very little sex there. There is also very little waist. I don’t know what she eats, but there must be very little of that, too.

I think the man is supposed to be shooting somebody, but it looks like he’s getting ready to throw the world’s smallest boomerang. You tell me.

All snarkiness aside, I really like the Hale covers. They are a refreshing change.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a UK hardcover version of Cancel All Our Vows, printed in 1955 by Robert Hale. Since you asked, my cover price is 9/6.
