It's tough to find Keelers, and tougher to find them with their original covers. So in the interest of Keelerians worldwide, here's a collection of original dustjackets and paperback covers. The images have been categorized by language and publisher, and then organized chronologically by publication date. Click on each thumbnail on these pages to view a bigger image--which you can then download, print, and use to make dustjackets for your naked Keelers!

Colors in these images are sometimes a little more lurid than the originals, and size may not be exact. In many cases, the jackets have been digitally retouched. Resolution is about 75 DPI.

I'm including the text of the blurb from the inside front jacket, and also the blurbs from the inside back and outside back jacket, when they relate to Keeler.

Book titles known to me for which I am still missing color images of the jackets are marked in red below. If you'd like to add more dustjackets, please do. Scan them, save them as JPEGs, and e-mail them to me.

Would you like to have the Dustjacket Vault plus back issues of Keeler News on a CD-ROM? Contact me.  --Richard Polt
