found in the kringwinkel in Geel, for only 75 eurocents per book!
these really caught my eye because there were at least 100 of them on the shelves. (yay for book collectors) and as you can imagine, i had a really hard time picking out my 5 favorites... these are the lucky ones i saved from a dusty life.
they are novels published by NBC, de Nederlandse Boeken Club, sold in the 60's and 70's. as you can see, they have a faux leather cover, with illustrations on the spine and front, always with some metallic details. bling bling!
i admit the illustrations are quite dated and cliché or cheezy... but i like them alot because of their simplicity.
