Let me be more specific. I enjoy the artwork of the first edition paperbacks. For example, 60s paperbacks had their style. I read a 60s spy novel last month (The Ninth Directive
by Adam Hall), and I would have enjoyed seeing the cover that went with it then. I have no interest in the new cover it is now sold with.
