Post Re: facsimile dust jackets
Coming late to this thread, but I bought a Puppet Masters jacket from the original linked company. Good quality, and clearly states on an inside flap that it's a facsimile. Pricey, but it may be the only one I ever buy. Now my RAH hardbacks all have a dust jacket!

The Puppet Masters jacket is, of course, the one with the suspicious bulge underneath it.

Ha! And it wants to periodically be pressed against other dust jackets!

In that vein . . . .

The jacket for Methuselah's Children won't wear out for hundreds of years.

The jacket for Double Star is a clever facsimile of the original.

The jacket for Number of the Beast argues with all of the other jackets as to which book should be on top of the stack.

Anyone else?

The jacket for Stranger in a Strange Land is waterproof.

The cover for Glory Road features a picture of Igli. So you have to keep buying a new cover every so often after Igli eats himself.
