More Paperback Cover Art

Books, Television
Post #3 of 5. These are in my library for sale, fifty cents plus shipping. Unless I rip you off in shipping, I’m not making any money on these, just offering them to an audience that might appreciate them.

Night Flight: Daring Air Pioneers in Stormy Skies by Antoine de St-Exupery. Signet 1945?. I wouldn’t call this one “pulp” other than the paper, it’s more like a mass-market paperback, but I really like the cover art minimalist drawing. And this paticular cover seems hard to find.

Must You Conform? by Robert Lindner. A Black Cat Book 1961. The author of Rebel Without a Cause? That makes sense actually. The oppressive mother and the whipped father being the cause of all James Dean’s problems written by a psychoanalyst.

The Girl With Something Extra by Paul W. Fairman. Lancer Books 1973. That looks like Sally Fields and John Davidson on the cover. It IS! Seems this became a TV show, or it was a TV show that became a book. Sally has E.S.P. and can read minds. Fits in perfectly with the 1970s interest in the occult and supernatural.
