Sometimes a nice cover catches my eye, but I assume it’s contemporary. If it weren’t for the slightly wonky type/kerning on this one, I might not have checked. Surprising that this is 1966 because of it’s simplicity as well as the semi-metallic ink. Seemed much more recent. Cooler still is that the back cover is completely devoid of copy—just the two color bands continuing around.
