    Yep. Although I had mine done through the University's photo services. Any good photo store can do it, too. Check around for prices.

    I have a Maltese Falcon "serviceman's copy" from the early 1940s (originally sold for 25 cents!) that's next on my agenda. (Gotta get up off my butt.) And I just got a Woman's Face morphing into a Grinning Skull cover for The Big Sleep at Aunt Agatha's in Ann Arbor. It was a tear-sheet of the cover. Don't know what year that was published.

    They come out looking great. Thumbtacks in each corner -- brightens up the room.

    Good luck & best wishes.
