You have only a few weeks to view the exhibition at Torquay Museum of Agatha Christie book covers by Tom Adams which closes on the 2 November. The museum also houses  a permanent exhibition of Christie memorabilia, but these brilliant artwork covers are absolutely fascinating. Photography is allowed in that gallery [though not in the permanent Christie exhibition] so I thought I would share some with you.

A travel tip if you are going to Torquay from Exeter take the scenic coastal route through Dawlish, Teignmouth, Shaldon and Babbacombe. The sea and estuary views are well worth it and as you drive down into Torquay  the museum is on your right before you get to the busy part of the town.

I was a little surprised that the edition with what would be now be considered a very offensive title and cover dates from as late as 1975.
