Inspiration for 2005

Dover Publications has kept Frank Tashlin’s THE BEAR THAT WASN’T in print for many years, which is yet another reason to love this wonderful publishing company. Its current edition lists for $2–one the all-time great bargains in the history of great bargains. If you haven’t read the book, you have no excuse for not owning your own copy.

But as far as I know, Dover’s editions have never used Tashlin’s original cover from back in 1946. And that’s a shame. So here it is. Happy new year!
