Yes, I am posting images of eight Ballantine Adult Fantasy edition books from 1969-1974 that I own to act as an antidote to yet one more hooded assassin/tramp stamp were-vampire shagger/other assorted "shiny new" cover art that promises (or belies) suckitude within.
Believe it or not, I wish there were more covers like these today. There's more of a "flow" to some of these, plus there are more pastel colors than on many Easter eggs.
Plus it helps that some of these are anthologies containing stories that I probably have never encountered elsewhere, so that is a bonus.
And some, like this Dunsany one, are just beautiful to me. Don't you agree?
