Completion Is Perfection: 75 Vintage Dust Jackets of Classic Books

Looking at a beautifully designed book cover is one thing, but if you only get the front, you aren’t getting the whole story. Older book covers served as windows into what people used to read, thanks to the catalog selections a lot of publishers put on the backs of their books, as well as showing even more beautiful art on the back. And that’s why going through a site like Facsimile Dust Jackets is such a treat; the site has pages full of covers you can buy to put on your beat up old books, or simply frame as art.
