  1. This is the Charles Keeping cover of my Puffin p/b edition. (Keeping also did the illustrations for the book).

    I wonder just how many different cover images there are for Sutcliff’s book? Some of them are rather odd, I have to say, but the most bizarre Beowulf cover I’ve ever come across is this one which was done for the 1954 edition of Ian Serrallier’s adaptation, titled “Beowulf the Warrior”. What on earth were the publishers thinking?
