Contemporary Doctor Who Episodes as Retro Book Covers

During the 1970s and onwards until the show was cancelled, Target Books published novel adaptations of Doctor Who episodes. The style of the cover art on these books—often hand-drawn, a mishmash of elements from the episode—has become somewhat iconic to Who fans in the decades since. You know a Target Book when you see one.
