Dream Street

For World Book Day here is my favourite book cover – Dream Street by Damon Runyon. It was published in 1989 by The Folio Society and I came across my copy years ago in a charity shop in West Kensington. The stories are set in New York in the 1920s and 30s and feature outlandish characters, illustrated in the book by Nicolas Bentley and David Eccles. The cover cloth is printed with a design by Alan Powers and makes me think of Art Deco towers.
