Here’s another long term project finally come to completion. It consists of two very large sized pictures that serve as a graphic bibliography depicting the covers of 200 fiction books featuring the French Foreign Legion in some capacity. The first hundred books were easy to find but the other hundred…not so much. I have to credit Tom Savage’s facebook page for many of these items especially the dust covers for the old UK/Sampson Low novels. Also thanks to Eugene O. who provided a dozen or so of the rare Panther paperbacks and, I have to admit, Amazon was helpful for many of the more obscure but wonderful books out on Kindle and print-on-demand option. I may have a repeat or two in here because so many of the covers change over time as the story gets reprinted and passed around to other publishers. I’ll keep working on it. There are several more books I could not fit into the 200 book format so these will be the start of the 100 slide. The pictures are large and may not display properly because Word Press sucks. Here are the direct download links (Slide-1) and (Slide-2).
Note: I posted an earlier graphic depicting 100 non-fiction books here. I’m working on a follow on to that one but have not reached the 200 mark yet.
