It's been more than a year since we featured Benedetto Caroselli, the best paperback illustrator Italy ever had to offer, in our opinion. He painted hundreds of covers, all executed at the highest level. Below you see ten more.

This cover by Benedetto Caroselli for Dammi la tua ecco la mia (“give me yours, here is mine”) features a lovely bride in a sheer mini-wedding dress. This is a reception we'd love to go to, and the line to dance with the bride forms behind us. Anyway, we’ve shown you pulped out versions of classic literature before, and this is another example. Matteo Bandello might be obscure to some, but he was famous enough in his time to have been an influence on William Shakespeare. As far as we know he never wrote a story with this title, but I Grandi Narratori often retitled classics. Oh, and by the way, a person speaks one’s “piece”, but holds one’s “peace”. At least that’s what Merriam–Webster says.
