Original Facsimile Dust Jackets

So I was led to the amazing Facsimile Dust Jackets L.L.C. via Shelfawareness this morning. They have over 8,000 dust jackets - first prints, reprints, mulitiple editions, etc. Their collection is amazing! And you can reprint each for about $22 a piece. IN LOVE. Here are a few of my favorites. If you have time, browse their website by category.
