15. Favourite colour cover.......The Pocket Poets series, including Howl by Allen Ginsburg
I love the covers of these books, they are so iconic in their simplicity. It was, apparently, done to make the series affordable and was borrowed from a book published ten years prior. The result is an asethetic that pulls together a diverse variety of poets. Lawrence Ferlinghetti said 'From the beginning the aim was to publish across the board, avoiding the provincial and the academic...I had in mind rather an international, dissident, insurgent ferment.'
