Wednesday Cover Story: Ah, those 70’s covers…

I spent an enteraining half-hour at my parents house recently, browsing their library for something to read. I ended up homeing in on a shelf of old 70s paperbacks and amusing myself for a while looking at their covers.  The cover that took the biscuit was that of The Navigator, by Morris West (pictured below) – a Pocket Book edition from 1977.

The collage of images, the posing couple (the hairdos!), the gaudy title and font. It’s hideous, yet so wonderfully 70s!
