Sunday Smile: Cakes and Ale


I love old trashy novel cover art. Don't you?


I love the fact that the one title is 'Cakes and Ale' (first published in 1930! This is the 1970 version) by W. Somerset Maugham (what a great name!). I might have to read this one, even though it smells so musty.
The other 3 novels were all written by Emilie Loring.

None of the books are readable, what with the water damage & my allergies to old paper. Yet, I had to buy them because of the cover art. Who needs words with covers like that?
