Best things about this cover:
- Is this guy going to shoot down the enemy plane or make love to it? Dude is primping. He just needs a bottle of Courvoisier: "Ma chérie, you are about to feel my love guns ..."
- Some of Target's early marketing campaigns were more successful than others.
Best things about this back cover:
- Atlantic Bookshelf writes the kind of criticism that sounds profound but is actually completely empty. "Living and consequently better?" "Better ..." than? Than what!? Fokkers!
"Who's Papa Gouraud going to kiss?"
"Oh, quite a lot of you. Here's the list; you can read it for yourselves."
I don't even want to know.
