Paperback 713: Flight / Edgar Jean Bracco (Berkley G291)

Paperback 713: Berkley Medallion G291 (PBO, 1959)

Title: Flight
Author: Edgar Jean Bracco
Cover artist: Uncredited

Yours for: $10


Best things about this cover:

  • Lasers!
  • Simple, clean lines. Shitty-looking sky, but still, oddly elegant in its simplicity.
  • Love the "Flight" font and its positioning on the horizon.
  • Surely the copywriter could've gotten another "A" word into that tagline.


Best things about this back cover:

  • "Authentic!" See, that's an "A"-word.
  • ETO is a common crossword answer. PTO, not so much (i.e. never).
  • "Annals" always makes me do a double-take. Also, another solid "A"-word.
