Iconic Agatha Christie cover art

There's no doubt Dame Agatha Christie is something of a legend. The feted femme of crime fiction penned over 80 novels, short stories and plays in her lifetime and, having sold over two billion books to date, easily holds her title as the best-selling novelist of all-time. With Christie Week fast approaching this September, we decided to celebrate this remarkable British author by taking a look at some of her cover art over the years.

From the psychedelic to the fantastical, the illustrations used for Agatha Christie's novels form some of the most surreal, vibrant and imaginative collection of book covers ever seen. Come revel in their eclectic appeal, below...
