We are all familiar with the green (and sometimes blue) hardback editions of Ransome's twelve books published by Jonathan Cape. If you remove the dustcover, they bear Cape's logo of an urn(?) with fruit, at the bottom of the spine.

But I realised this week that there is another tiny drawing that is shown between the book's title and the author's name. What is this - a chilli? Is it solely used for Ransome, or did other authors have this standard motif used?
