Art

A carefully curated collection of stunning original dustwrapper artwork from the 1950s to 1960s. This is the original, highly finished artwork for books ranging from Scales of Justice by Ngaio Marsh for Collins Crime Club to Trustee from the Toolroom by Neville Shoote, illustrated by Hans Helweg. More information on Hans Helweg can be found here. He also illustrated the Paddington books.

The vintage art is evocative of its era. In addition to hand painted Collins Crime Club original illustrations, we have a range of Collins Thriller, Collins Mystery and Pan book artwork.

They make wonderful vintage, evocative gifts for booklovers and anyone who loves the style of the 1950s and 1960s.

In addition to Hans Helweg, the 1950s & 60's crime and thriller dustwrapper artists William Randell, Sax, Barbara Walton and Eileen Walton are included.
