A brand new series in the grand tradition of the Top 100 Singles, the Periodic Table Of Pop and the Top 25 Brands. But this one doesn’t require much in the way of writing, and a pace of one a week should be simple. And we should be able to rustle up fifty two of them. In honour of Starry Sarah’s Fontana edition of Destination Unknown, with the most psychedelic cover of a book I have seen in years. Well I haven’t scanned it yet, and can’t find it on the web – but I did find this one for Death in the Sky.

Which you have to admit is pretty scary (click thru for abject terror).


This doom by giant wasp illustration was done by Tom Adams (website here) and would have been on a Collins edition in the late sixties (this version might be a slight reworking). I can’t find it in situ, but would be happy to see it.

If you have read this one, is the picture an accurate representation of the plot, I know we have a lot of Christie readers round here. And for the future let me know if you have any great other Christie covers. Or want to contribute yourself. Via the medium of the Christie Cover I think we can get a good insight into the literary, art and even political world of the 20th Century. Or just shits and giggles. Or in this case NIGHTMARES!!!
