Hee - and the sleeve is loose again on the white dress.

MLE, it's so jarring, isn't it?

This pair gets around. The one on the left I just spotted, on the right has been posted with others way back somewhere on this thread.

Dang, quite the Photoshop styling work on her hair!

He's got oddly veiny hands, for having such a smooth young face.

Interesting observation on his hands. They are getting good at the photoshpping. I'd probably miss some if the man and his jacket didn't stand out so much.

They're blocking my view of the ship. I do like his jacket though.

I've seen that couple a lot. For example, on one of Susanna Fraser's novels, which may be upthread but this one is too long to look for it:

He does seem to get a lot of use out of that jacket!

I'm pretty sure the guy is a male cover model (and probably the woman as well), which may be why we see them so often.

I've also seen several self-published novels with a guy who looks an awful lot like the actor, Michael T. Weiss: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0919117/

[quote=""Misfit""]That bib is something. Some of the covers below I think we've posted before, but found a new match on the left.
