Do you know this man?



"Rodokaps" is abbreviation for "román do kapsy", which means "novel into the pocket". Usually it's cheap thin book with a western story (which pretends to be written by an American author and very probably is actually written by a Czech author who wants to earn some money quickly. I even read about a quite famous Czech author who wrote them himself and was quite proud about them, but then read it and could recognise his own work, how they changed it... unfortunatelly I forgot who it was. ::)) Sometimes they call by this term also other cheap editions of "minor" genres, as you can see on this photo (no western, some sci-fi.)

I found this in a "Cheap Books" store in Brno and, of course, had to take a photo of it. (BTW, I bought Yojimbo in that store. :))

In America, they use to be called "dime novels."

Good to know. :)

Do you know that man? I admit, the artist probably wasn't best on portraits, but there's a similarity...

I don't think it's eastwood. The nose is flat and larger than Clint's. Eyes are farther apart, too. Definitely looks like a familiar actor, but I don't know who , yet. :-\

It is definitely Clint. Just take a look at his clothes. It is the same clothes that he is wearing under his poncho. Also, cigar in his mouth... :)

In his hand, poderator.

I hope you can see the similarities:


As I said, the author wasn't best on portraits. Or he did it on purpose, so he couldn't be blamed for using Clint Eastwood for his "advertising"?

I'd say that latter is the case. It looks like Eastwood just enough to give you the idea, without being lawsuit-worthy.

Probably yes.

Yes, in his hand.  ???But from his hand into his mouth, right? ;)
