Creaseymania 4: Introducing the Toff

Some more sharp-looking covers and one title which would raise a few eyebrows today. Note the Saint-esque stick logo.

Some covers for the Baron (or is it Blue Mask?) series featuring jewel thief John Mannering.

Creaseymania 2

Two entries from Creasey's Department Z series. I  like the subdued colours of the artwork. The League of Dark Men has both a front and back cover illustration.


I purchased some vintage (mostly 1960s) John Creasey paperbacks this week from a local used bookstore. I got first crack at them although I'm not sure if this means that I have preferred customer priveleges or that no one else is interested in them (I suspect the latter). I'm going to make a few posts featuring my favourites from the lot in what is probably an inauspicious revival of this blog...
