Books by their covers

Go over to A Journey Round My Skull and scroll through the eye-popping gallery of vintage Slovak and Czech book covers; if you have another ten minutes, sit down with Momus here while he talks you through a slideshow of his favourite Japanese book jackets. One is reminded as ever of how graphic design can affect everyday life, and, in the case of literature, be the beginning of an intellectual seduction.
