quatermass and the pit

I think the 60's penguin book covers are one of the greatest British designs, with the classic orange borders and use of a fine art or commissioned black and white image. I picked up on this as it is also one of my favourite films, but the image on the cover sums up all the strangeness and dread of the movie in a single picture. The style is very reminiscent of school editions of classics that i read as a child, faded and worn with almost naive, budget graphics to draw in the reader.
