I notice the Viscount's hair is TAMER than our American Civil War pal there, with the foof coming off the front of his pompadour. :p

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.

I still can't believe these cover people are so lacking in imagination that they don't pop over to any renaissance faire near them. Re-enactors who slave for months on their costumes would be thrilled to have them featured on a book cover. And they'd get all their friends to buy it, too, regardless of quality! Here's one from our guild -- though they'd have to photoshop out that tacky blue-and-white 'faire favor' Chelsea has pinned to the ruffle.

MLE, I've wondered that sort of thing myself. And Chelsea is so beautiful - not a shiny, dull too-young little model.

The girl in the white dress has become blonde, in what shows of her hair. Fascinating! ;)

Nice blackwork chemise and the corset has the proper Tudor/Elizabethan waist tabs -- Not to say that it's actually set in the Renaissance, but if so, they got that part right!

Those are nicer covers than most we've seen around here.

Yup I like them. Maybe the McGuire cover is better because "Emily Murdoch" looks too white with that background.

As for the setting the Murdoch is set in 1069 and the McGuire sounds like earlier, not sure.

BTW is that a zip? lol Love the needlework...
