Retro Penguin Paperback Covers #17

I’m back after my hiatus with the next batch of retro Penguin paperbacks. This batch strikes me as a particularly good one, but maybe I’m just feeling the effects of their prolonged absence. In any event, please enjoy the latest selection, scanned at 300dpi. All other entries in this series can be found here. Have an amazing weekend and drink some gravy for me.
