Here's the cover of a book I bought from GRANT'S bookshop
just outside Glasgow's Central Station back in 1980.  You'll have to
forgive the quality of this scan - there's quite a bit of dust under the
clear plastic cover which protects the book from wear and tear and I
ain't taking it off to wipe it.  (Just in case I inadvertently damage it.)
Painted by BOB LARKIN, it's reminiscent of JACK KIRBY's il-
lustration to The INCREDIBLE HULK #1.  I thought I'd share
it with you here for no other reason than that it's PDB  (Pretty
Darn Brilliant).  I'm sure you agree.  Enjoy.

Today, I started re-reading Edgar Rice Burroughs Llana of Gathol. My first copy came from Grant's bookshop.No one I know seems to remember it was there!

Amazing. I loved going into Grant's and browsing around. I've still got the books I purchased in there over the years.
