Put an owl on it

I just love the cushion on the cover of this 1973 book (I told you I'd be milking the owl theme this week):

Just look at all the detail and the great colour scheme, he's absolutely beautiful with his wise and kindly face.

This book was one of the first purchases I ever made on eBay, going back almost exactly 10 years now. And in all that time, I'd never noticed the gorgeous cover hiding beneath the dustjacket:

Oh they don't make 'em like they used to...
