    Hi Peter, what a great observation! Can you say more about the image on the Newbigin cover? What is the building behind the sculpture? It strikes me that architecture, as well as sculpture, is coming into play here too. The 60s was also a time when lots of cities engaged in post-war rebuilding after the blitz. It took till then for monies to be released to do this in many cases. Perhaps, theology publications, and theology itself, caught this phoenix-like spirit of renewal reflected in rebuilding programmes?

    Hi Peter – The Resurrection of Christ cover uses a detail from the painting by Piero della Francesca. Thanks for a fascinating survey. I wish I still worked at CERC where I could have shown you several more similar instances of such paperbacks in our library / publication collection.
