loving, by henry green

I picked this up in the library today.

I am in love with the cover. It consists of the boring, standard issue library hard cover, on top of which someone has glued the the cover from the paperback. Someone actually cared back then, whenever this book was added to the library collection, to painstakingly cut out and paste the original, now yellowing, paperback cover. Someone had to write the call number in white out on the spine.

What you can't see in this photo because my fingers are obscuring the top right half corner, is that the price of this book was 85 p. Yes, eighty five pence.
