I know but since children at the time were so strongly encouraged to write with their right hand I wonder how many people really got to adult without surrendering.

So the right-handed photo is the "original" and the flipped image is the product of a graphic designer's need to individuate the cover.

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.

Well, maybe. But since the photo was taken now and not then, it could simply be that they picked a left-handed model! :p

I spotted this on my gr feeds when a friend liked a status update. I believe this came from a painting and not a photo. I'm for bed, will dig more tomorrow.

I think this is also the dress used for the cover of Christie Dickason's novel The King's Daughter.

Thanks, I knew there was at least one more cover where we'd spotted it.

I think that dress looks best in the blue.

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!

The déjà vu blue drss looks 18th century to me, not Tudor!
