THE QUEEN BEE - BOOK COVER, SPINE & TEXTURE






Here's a fabulous bodice-ripper, full of deathless prose, lol. Great cover, date around 1950s/early 1960s (pre-decimal currency anyway).


The book cost 6 shillings, which works out to around 35p in today's currency - for a hardback! How times have changed, lol.


I've also included the spine as these are great for bookmarks, and edging detail in journals.










Here's the inner cover plus end flaps - the blurb could be great for jouralling!


Finally, the centre cut out, so you have this as a texture - or a great start for a background where you need the crease for the spine. Print out a pile of these, join at the spine for an instant book!

All of these are at 300dpi, unretouched.... have fun!

  2. When I saw that picture and title, it struck a memory from long ago when I was a child 1950's or maybe early 1960's. Then I scrolled down and read the jacket I knew for sure I have read this book, My grandmother had it. Wow My grandmother also introduced me to Rebecca and Frenchman's Creek, 9 Coaches Waiting and a glorious stack of great authors. Oh yeah it was a good story.

    1. Got to say I wasn't able to read the book! Someone brought it along for one of my altered book classes, and I managed to talk her into giving me the cover. I would love to have read it, I image it would have been full of torrid romance, breathless sighs, cliff hangers at the end of every chapter... in other words, a lot of fun. Sigh.
