Kingfishers in Kashmir
Sometimes I buy books just for the dust jacket. This was from Oxfam, so it didn't cost me much. A wonderful design for the first edition of Rumer Godden's slightly sinister 1953 novel of living in Kashmir. This harks back to her experience of living for three years, after the break-up of her marriage in the early 1940s, in an isolated Kashmiri village with her children - and surviving what was an apparent attempt to poison her. Frustratingly, there is nothing to indicate who designed the dust jacket.
