Beautiful Vintage Dust Jackets From Classic Novels


We don’t know about you, but it’s not too often that we stop to look at a dust jacket in its entirety, and as we’ve come to discover, that is a shame. Earlier this week, Dangerous Minds tipped us off to Facsimile Dust Jackets, a veritable treasure trove of beautiful, fully unfurled (flaps and all!) vintage jackets from almost 8,000 books. As an added bonus, you can also buy the prints from the website. It’s interesting the way the oft-maligned or merely informational back cover of a book coordinates (or doesn’t) with the front, and we’re thinking we’ll be pulling the paper off a lot more of our novels in the future, just for a good look-see. Click through to see some of our favorites from Facsimile Dust Jackets, and head on over there to peruse their stash for yourself!
