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.
Lots of vintage eye candy on this list. https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/395 ... is_Anymore

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Dang, that dress gets around. Although it's not bad for the period. Way better than the horrible burgundy satin ruff.
Don't the book-cover artists have a bigger wardrobe supplier? And when I think of all the period re-enactors--from Roman to wild west--I can't believe they are so limited in their costume choices.

I believe I heard a friend who is getting into the cover design business (with original looking covers, I might add), mention that there are limited historical clothing for the models, so they have to get creative.
