    Interesting early B Page history--especially paperback tie-ins.

    The print quality of the photographs leaves a lot to be desired, but the photographer's knowledge and early association with Miss Page make this book a valuable addition to any fan's BP collection--especially the connection between photographs that became paintings that become paperback covers. I am both a early paperback collector and an admirer of Miss Page, so this book proved to be very interesting. I just wish the photographic reproductions were much better than they are.
