Retro Book Cover: Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

I love old books, not only to read but in many cases for their covers as well.

Here's a real treasure from the 1960s, I found on a trip to my favourite bookshop in Tenby the other week!  A Penguin edition of Breakfast At Tiffany's by Truman Capote.

Not only does the book design feature the iconic orange synonymous with Penguin at the time but also a  photograph of the wonderful Audrey Hepburn as she appeared in the film of the same name.

This particular edition was printed in 1963 and was available for the price of 2/6 (two shillings and sixpence).
