The Men of Pelican.

You'll excuse the plug, but it just occured to me that Found Objects partisans might be interested in a brief series of posts about Pelican Books that I'm currently running on my own blog.

As a taster, here is a selection of scans that allow us to learn a bit more about the individuals to whom to education of the common man was entrusted back in the golden age of paperbacks. I'm guessing they let them write their own bios.

(Also: hard to imagine picking up a modern introduction to Film Studies written by two men who'd both spent multiple years in Prisoner Of War camps...)
