In the display are covers from the 1960s through to the 1990s. Covers that graced the books of authors such as Gloria Bevan, Robyn Donald, and the iconic Queen of Kiwi romance, Essie Summers are all represented. Also exhibited are some covers from Ivy Preston who, while not a Mills and Boon author, wrote for the English publisher Robert Hale.
