Agatha Christie: The Art of Her Crimes.
Introduction by John Fowles. This big art book is a collection of Christie paperback covers Tom Adams painted, starting in 1962 with his cover for A Murder is Announced. Over 90 paintings are reproduced, each with a comment by Tom Adams and by Julian Symons, a highly recognized crime-writer, biographer, and critic. Even if you've never picked up an Agatha Christie paperback bets are you will recognize some of these paintings. The comments by Adams and Symons help explain the artist's thought process on this kind of project, and some of the symbolism used. VG. Everest House Publishers. New York. 1981, Hb, Dj. USED. $$14.00
