Strange breed

Strange Breed front cover. Two women are on a bed, seemingly naked and partially covered with sheets. One, a redhead woman, is closest to the viewer and lies on her back, head toward the left of the image, with eyes closed, a smile, and her hands folded over her chest, under which a sheet covers the rest of her body. She seems to have both her knees bent. Her face is fully lit. The other woman, a brunette, is next to her in the background, her feet facing the opposite direction to that of the redhead's. Her torso is leaning on her elbows, which rest on her slightly bent knees. Her back faces the viewer in a three-quarter angle and is fully bare. A ray of light shines on it. Her legs are covered with a sheet from her hip down. Her face is bowed down with eyes open, also looking down. Her hair is partly tied up behind her nape. The scene is lit from the top right.
