A few rare book covers of RK Narayan‘s novels and short stories. You will see that a few are repeated as they are from the first and subsequent editions. On some of the Covers, RK Laxman has done the illustrations.

    Maga,
    These book covers really entice me to read some of these. Don’t tell that I judge a book by its cover!

    deepu,
    it is the cover that you see first, so in a way, even that is important. and for a graphic designer, the cover is what really matters first. the illustrations/ pics. and the fonts on the cover are what i see first when i pick up a book.
    hope you read these wonderful books soon.🙂

    Gosh! These are such amazing covers. Do you own these? I am a big fan of Narayan and own all of his books. However, none of my books have such gorgeous covers. I’m really interested in looking for first editions/ letter press versions of his books just for keepsake. Would you know anyone in India willing to sell these? Or the name of the publishers?

    Let me know… Thanks! Rupa
