Women's barracks

Women's Barracks front cover. A blonde, seemingly sitting down, is shown, from the top of her back upwards, at a three-quarter angle and in profile, showing her right shoulder and part of her right arm and the top of her back. Her hair is tied up with a hair clip at the top of her head and flows down to her nape. A strap of her brassiere is visible over her right shoulder. Her head, turned to her right, partially faces the reader. Her eyes are looking down toward her right. What seems to be a khaki military garment is partially shown, wrinkled, behind her back. Behind the blonde, to the left of the image, stands a brunette in profile, also at a three-quarter angle towards the back of the image, facing left. She has on a khaki military shirt that partially hangs, disclosing her shoulders and the top of her back, and exposing the strap of her brassiere on her left side. She seems to be wearing a khaki skirt. Her hair is up and she holds a cigarette in her left hand, which she stares at. The scene is lit from the top left.
Women's Barracks by Tereska TorrÄ—s is credited as the first of the mid-century pulp paperbacks to feature a lesbian-themed cover and contain passages describing physical intimacy between two women.

Unashamed (The)

The Unashamed front cover. The torsos of two women cover most of the space. One, a blonde with long, curly hair and bangs across her forehead, is to the right of the reader, sitting with her torso and her head leaned slightly to her right and forward, looking down with a slight smile and dressed in a white negligee. On her lap, a brunette with short hair leans over her head and right arm, her hand on the blonde's lap, which is covered in pink from the background. She is wearing a black negligee and her face is oriented toward the reader, turned up slightly towards her right and looking up with half-closed eyes. The scene is lit in diffused light that comes from the right.

Third street (The)

The Third Street front cover. The cover shows a night scene, outdoors in a city or town street. Two women, their backs to the reader, walk holding hands. The one on the left is a blonde with hair flipped outwards at her shoulders. She is wearing a yellow, sleeveless dress with an adjusted waist, and black, high heels. She carries a clutch-type black handbag in her left hand and her head is turned sharply to her right, looking straight out at the other woman, a brunette with short hair who is wearing a black blouse with long sleeves, brown pants tapered at the ankles, and black low heels. Her right arm is extended downwards. The street looks wet and there are buildings, some neon signs and a lamp post in the background. The scene is lit from the top right.
