and furthermore....

In conjunction with the whole I- love- the- new Read -Red -Penguin series, I am excessively infatuated with the Harper Perennial reprintings of the Aubrey-Maturin canon.


I am usually sceptical of photographs on covers, but the two I have purchased in as many days have proven me wrong.

Harper Perennial has perfectly cast a physical double of Maturin ( HE LOOKS LIKE MATURIN DAMMIT!!!---specs and ALL). Though Paul Bettany captured the "spirit" of Maturin in the film, he never looked at all like him. This physical double is brilliant. I cannot believe the brilliance here.

Rendered inarticulate and prone to redundancy but am not at fault. OBSERVE THE BRILLIANCE !
