I’ve posted about the covers before (you can read previous posts here, here and here) and so, with a focus on those from 1981 (all of forty one years ago), here’s another small selection of that wonderful artwork.
|It was clearly a big deal for Bond to be on TV then (Dr No was released in 1962, 13 years prior to this edition. As of today, we're 47 years after this edition, which doesn't feel right at all...)|
|Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man, a major hero of my childhood|
|I didn't realise Just William was this old, to be honest - my sister-in-law still jokes about 'scweaming until she maketh herself sick...'|
|At the time I didn't realise The Latchkey Children was based on the novel by Eric Allen, but I discovered and read it in 2013 (and blogged about it here)|
|My favourite film of 1981, I blogged about Raiders Of The Lost Ark here|
