NYPL Book Cover Library

The New York Public Library, as the excellent archivists they are, have compiled an archive of those dustjackets that are so often torn or missing when you buy them at thrift shops and used book stores. Most seem to hail from the 1940s — lots of Nazi/Axis-related books — but a lot of fine WPA-style art that I miss so. Beware: give yourself time, you could lose hours.
