The dress again. Have we had this one? It's hard to keep track.

At least her arm isn't bent at such a weird angle in this one. I can see why they've cropped it out in most of the covers showing her from behind.

Still a weird angle though, the way she's leaning back and pushing her stomach out.

Her arms do look to be at an odd angle. I don't think we've seen this cover before.

But check out her arms on the Dead Man's Debt cover you posted yesterday, now that just doesn't look comfortable!

OMG I didn't notice that yesterday (too distracted by the guy's hair on the othr cover:rolleyes :) but that looks an impossible position - either she's double-jointed, or that arm's on back to front :eek:

In many of the covers she's on in that pose, they've cropped off the awkward arm.

She doesn't look comfortable in any of the poses, and the sleeves are always a bit too wide for her magical distorting arms.

[quote=""Misfit""]I haven't seen many recent Severn House covers, but the older 80s books i've got via library have been so bad even I'm embarrassed to read them in public. I'll hunt one down when I get to a desktop.[/quote]

Well... it was the 80s...
