Navigating the Site:
Click on the links--Site Search and Browse Categories (here and throughout the site) to return to a Condensed Site Overview with links and descriptions, and information about what's new on the site, as well as a general site-search panel like the one at the top of this page. This is an excellent and easy way to familiarize oneself with the entire site I think.
The Site map link leads to a more extensive site-map and access to more advanced searching features. What's new lists newest additions and updates to the site.

Throughout the site, Clicking on Underlined Names will lead to pictorial examples of that artist or author's works. On Gallery Pages you will find examples of dust jackets and links to photographic examples of the covers and illustrations of many of the books themselves, as well as synopses and biographical data—and in some cases—examples of their writings.

The “Dust Jacket Indexoffers links to pictures of dust jacket images which have been restored to like new condition. Although they are not available as facsimiles at this time, I thought people might still enjoy looking at them.

Unrestored Dust Jackets," offers links to pictures of dust jackets in original condition.

A Word About the Dust Jackets I've Collected.

As a lifelong lover of old books and beautiful images, it seems only natural that dust jackets should end up being such an enriching part of owning a book and one I'd feel like sharing. The Victorian era and the Early Twentieth Century have always been of strong interest to me. Some very beautiful books were printed during that time—many with gorgeous illustrations. As you peruse these pages, you will see a number of first edition dust jackets, many examples of well-known authors and artists, and also some you may not recognize—who were very popular in their time, but are less well-remembered today. You will also see many reprint dust jackets. All of them—first editions and reprints, obscure and famous alike—wonderful examples (I think) of the veneer of graceful beauty and stylish imagery that characterized much of popular culture in the Victorian era and the early twentieth century. I have sought out what I felt evoked the beauty, the elegance, the class, the mystery, and sometimes the slightly sensational aspects of these decades. It is my hope that the website will become a fun and informative resource for collectors.

Please enjoy! If you are looking for something very specific, and don't see it on these pages, please consider checking out my Links page or contacting me. I may know how to help you to find what you are looking for.

At present, I am no longer creating and selling facsimile dust jackets. I apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause.
I suffer from a chronic illness, which has made the work increasingly difficult at times.

The books and dust jackets are also rare enough that the demand for facsimiles was also understandably rare, leading to a lot of wasting of paper and ink at times (to keep the printer printing at optimum levels) and consequently too much expense for the exceedingly low rates I was charging.

So regretfully, for both practical and personal reasons, I've decided I need to commit to spending my alottment of time and energies elsewhere. Thank you to all those who supported me over the years! I have enjoyed working with you!

I hope people will still enjoy visiting the website as a pleasurable and educational resource. I apologize for any inconsistencies on the website while I'm working to update it with these changes.
