I bought this book at a market the other day, mostly because I liked the cover design (front and back shown here). Clean and functional, yet distinctive.

It was published in 1957, and looks very dry to be honest; I don’t know if I’ll ever read it. It’s interesting how the back cover gives a profile of the author rather than some tantalising blurb of what you might find in the pages…how times have changed!
