Keeping the Bantam 1295 code from The Name is Archer and the familiar, rich, 100% black and 40% cyan spine with magenta-ish type and logo were essential to making The Archer Files feel like a vintage Bantam paperback. This spine design was used by Bantam throughout the 1950s and 1960s on many of their books. The sight of the comparatively oversized book next to the small original continues to amuse me, much like seeing a Matchbox car next to its real counterpart, or one of those magic tricks where a coin is transformed into a giant version before your eyes.
