Never judge a cover by it’s book, and just to prove it here’s a nice example, ‘The Americanisation of Emily’ from 1960. Now as we all know nothing grabs the attention like sexy, and what could be sexier than Americanisation?

I wouldn’t recommend actually reading any of this book, those foolish enough to do so will find a sordid ‘satire’ about a group of women known as ‘the sloane sluts’ ‘chauffeuring’ senior members of the american military in exchange for nylons and girdles. Instead enjoy the scandalous painting on the cover and the irresistible font used for the title.
