Déjà Vu Again

Back in March I posted about a French book having the same picture on its cover as a PAN one. I have now come across another instance of recycling images.

I spotted that ‘The Saint’s Getaway PAN G294 from 1959 has a cover that looks very much like a PEFF and which has been heavily edited for the Hodder 1965 copy of the same title. I find I have 6 Saint titles from Hodder in this series style and all of them look as thought the artwork has been acquired from elsewhere (Hodder was briefly part of a consortium that bought out PAN Books) Anyone recognise the others?SaintGetaway

Update to my posting about appearing in the papers. So far I have had all on no responses to my request for help in finding the last PAN title X705 ‘PAN Junior Crosswords Book 3’ but have been asked several times ‘What will you do when completing the collection?’ I have been working on this for a while, hence the Hodder titles for my other website www.tikit.org to which covers get added on an ad hoc basis.

Finally, as a tail note, not sure if there is a link between my exhibition at Walsall Museum and the news that has appeared in the papers this week, I hope not.
