Difficult Loves (1985).

Today’s book purchase was another in the Picador run of Italo Calvino titles with covers by the Brothers Quay, this particular volume being a collection of the author’s early short stories. I wrote about the Quay’s contribution to book design back in February and their covers remain one of many reasons to keep haunting the local charity shops, especially when their designs are superior to those of more recent editions.
