    Oh, I forgot to add - I was wondering what people thought of the newest covers with the Christie signature on them? I like them as they boil it down to one primary important image. I didn't like the covers before that that used boring static one-color desolate scenes like a street lamp or empty street. Too generic and dull!
  • I like some of the signature mono B&W but the Mr Quin one is blue and just awful! Not a raibow of Harlequin colours.

    I agree that they missed an opportunity with that one - could have definitely used rainbow colors and a harlequin mask.

    I like alot of the latest book book covers. Some are in the style of Art Deco posters. But there are exceptions. I liked the Mr Quin one at first, then I later thought perhaps it's too cartoon like? I think the cover nees mystery depth and a touch of something sinister. 

     But I noticed they made an error with Lord Edgware Dies- there is no gun in the plot! I wonder how many other spoilers and errors are on Christie book covers?


    Christery Thank you for telling me about Dr Who, I will try and catch that episode sometime.

  • One of the best is the 4.50 From Paddington cover. The clues are all there , even the compact.
