In response to the demands of HiLobrow, Boing Boing and io9 readers, here’s the twelfth in what is now a series of twenty posts showcasing my collection of midcentury paperbacks the titles of which include an “X.”

Echo X (1968 edition), by Ben Barzman. Original title: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (1960); renamed in ’62.

Below: bonus shot of the 1962 edition’s cover! For some reason, over the years I’ve picked up multiple copies of this title.
