lymond covers

A couple of months ago I finally managed to purchase the whole set of the Chronicles of Lymond books by Dorothy Dunnet. I've started reading some of T's borrowed copies, but the series is so good that I had to get my own copies, of course ;-) I got them on eBay, really cheap, but the problem is that the editions were somewhat old (1973), not in the best of conditions and have really cheesy covers ...



And because it takes me such a long time to read one of these (Lymond has to be read slowly ...), and I was afraid to damage these copies more, I decided to make some japanse style covers for volumes III (currently reading) and IV (to take with me on vacation).

So the result was this:

I really like the japanese style covers! Specially if the books are on loan, I am afraid to bash them or bend them. I had not thought of the velcro closure though, good idea| Enjoy the books and the holiday!
