The Caustic Cover Critic has amassed a truly stunning collection of covers with a "woman clutching her head in a field" photo. She has a disappearing scarf! :p

It's been a long time since I came by and ... this was worth seeing, in its way. The badly rendered font, the look on her (yes, much too young and badly painted, MLE) face. Oh the glorious cheese.

Staying well away from the blurb, definitely ...
