Hmmm, I think they just step over the line into kitsch.

Some things are just plain unpleasant to look upon, and generally result in highly unfavorable evaluations.

I prefer the originals, with the covers, as they were intended to be.

"I prefer the originals, with the covers, as they were intended to be."

I agree. There is a wonderful quality and continuity in all 9 of Steffi's cover designs, a certain evocative "feel" mingling the imagery of pulp sci-fi with an arcane glyphography, an illustrative amalgamation of abstraction and antiquated forms. Those images simultaneously project a sinister atmosphere and a crisp clean boldness. Very fitting for KG's masterworks which continually deal with the otherworldly dimensions of illusory glamours-and the sharp cutting edge of illumination.

These bindings may be repulsive, but they do have a certain distinguished "looks-like-they-just-got-puked-on-by-a-demon" aura about them.

I don't find them very attractive either.  However, I must say that this volume is really quite nice (and the binder admitted to actually reading this one!):

N.O.X., I agree, that is the proverbial "diamond gleaming in the goats ass." What really tickled me though was the statement about Mr. Yarker not being a "degree monger." Nothing like starting the day on a positive note!

Too bright and too clashing in the colour department.  That masonic one is 'alright' and having 'alright' be the best says a lot.. I agree with darkflame..

A lesson in how to completly devalue a set of sought after books.

Probably would not mistake them for a different book on your shelf.
