Benny Cooperman Mystery Series


“Penguin has re-launched the first 11 Cooperman books (written by Howard Engel) in paperback with a lively new design and a number emblazoned on the spine of each volume, so that obsessive Cooperman fans can shelve them in order of their creation, from No. 1, The Suicide Murders (1980), to No. 11, Memory Book (2005). This is an exceptional publishing event, something the French might do while promoting someone for a shot at the Nobel. Nobody has done it before, on this scale, for a Canadian.”

– Robert Fulford, National Post

I’ve never read any of these myself, but I’m a huge sucker for the  Saul Bass style illustrations and typography.
