Covers of a few Tamil historical novels. Kalki was the forerunner of the genre, pic 1 is of his novel Parthiban Kanavu. Pic 4 is a novel set in the reign of the Cholas by Sujatha. Pics 2 and 3 are covers of books by the author Sandilyan whose subject matter is varied, Pic 3 for example is of the novel Yavana Rani i.e. Greek Queen. Pic 2 is of the novel Rajamuthirai (The King’s Seal). Unfortunately it appears they are quite difficult to translate.
Lots of pretty women sporting some complicated updos…the men aren’t too bad either : all wavy locks, neat moustaches and bare upper bodies:)
