The History of Postwar Paperback Publishing. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Cheap paper and lurid covers, the paperbacks of the post-war period were intended to sell in large numbers, and they did. Surprisingly this period of British literary history has never been documented before. So here at last it is — a book for the scholar, the collector or the reader. Steve Holland’s study of paperbacks will evoke memories for some, and enlighten others, of the blossoming of the modem paperback from the ‘Mushroom Jungle’ of post-war back street publishing houses.”
