As those of you who have been paying attention will know, I've already announced (see here if you haven't been paying attention) that come January 2022 there will be eleven new Furrowed Middlebrow/Dean Street Press editions of D. E. Stevenson titles, many of them among her hardest-to-find and most-loved books. I said at that time that we hoped to use many of the original covers for our editions, and now it's time to show you what we've come up with. (Those of you on Twitter may already have seen these previewed there but this is the first time they've all been shown together.)
Are you ready? Brace yourselves!
All but one have original covers (though in a couple of cases we went with U.S. first edition covers rather than U.K. firsts). As a reminder, our editions of The English Air, Five Windows, The Tall Stranger, Anna and Her Daughters, and The Blue Sapphire will be paperback-only, as e-book editions for those are already available from another publisher. We will release the remaining titles in both paperback and e-book, as per our norm.
Big thanks, as so often before, to Jerri Chase for providing scans of the covers of her copies of Green Money and Five Windows!
And, last but certainly not least, we have the one title that couldn't make use of an original vintage cover image, for the simply reason that it wasn't ever published until the lovely Greyladies Books did it a few years back. I had excellent good luck with The Fair Miss Fortune, as I'd only just begun looking for possible cover images when I came across a vintage advertising image that, in my opinion, perfectly captures the frolicsome tone of the book and subtly suggests its theme and the cause of all the rollicking confusion in the plot.
