That lady is very heavily made up for what I assume is Regency era. I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have wanted to look so tan back then! :lol:

Yeah, but he's still so handsome in that jacket.

Well now. I know I've seen this artwork on at least one other foreign edition. Now if I could remember it.

^ She's getting a lot of millage out of that dress.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I've seen this too! Can't remember where though, and all my books are boxed up right now.

EDIT: Thought it might have been the corner of this one, but nope. What a cover though, love Joan of Kent's nail polish :D

Looks like she has her own personal stylist and make-up artist.

That cover of the Harper novel screams '70s!

Our friend on the "Freedom" cover looks like she's got red nails as well.

I *adore* 60s/70s cover art, and not even in an ironic way. Even as wrong as this one is, it's so much more evocative than photos of headless women.
