Girls in 3-B (The)

The Girls in 3-B front cover. Three women form a triangle inside what looks to be the bedroom of a city apartment. One, a blonde, stands in the background facing the reader, leaning against a wall beside a window. Her hair is shoulder-length and she is holding a cigarette in her right hand. Her right arm is fully extended downward and she grips it, with her right hand, at the elbow. She is wearing an orange jacket, unbuttoned, a brown skirt, and low heels stilettos. Her left leg is slightly bent, with the foot to her side, pointing out. She looks down to her left at another woman, a brunette with short hair, who sits on a bed with red and white undone sheets, putting on a stocking on her left leg. She sits in full profile, facing left of the image, and is wearing a black negligee and low heel stilettos on her right foot. The right leg shows a stocking at mid-thigh, and the left foot is bare. A third woman, also a brunette, stands with her back to the reader on the forefront left of the image. She wears a black slip and looks as if she is about to take off a blue blouse. Her hair is long and reaches the middle of her back, part of which is exposed. She too is looking at the brunette. There is a side table in the background, with a potted plant on top, and a pair of slippers on the ground. The scene is lit from the front right.

This bed we made

This Bed We Made front cover. Two women and one man are in a bedroom. A brunette with short, curly hair and a black negligee, lays on her back on a bed with a pink blanket, her shoulders and head on a propped-up pillow, looking slightly toward the right of the image with a slight smile and half-closed eyes. Behind the pillow, a wrought brass headboard is partly in view. Her left arm is bent at the elbow; hand curled inwards. She holds a cigarette in her right hand; outer side rested on her right thigh. She also wears stockings to the middle of her thighs. Sitting up on the bed by the brunette's legs is a blonde. Her body is at a three-quarter angle facing right of the image, and she appears to be fully naked except for a nylon, light blue shawl which is wrapped around her hips and across her chest, covering her breasts. She holds the shawl with both arms crossed in front of her under her breasts and on her right hip. Her hair is tied in a ponytail with a light green bow, and her head is turned towards the brunette. In the background to the left, a man stands against the wall. He has short, brown hair parted to the side, and is wearing a dark blue t-shirt and gray pants with a black belt. His right hand is on his waist; the left arm stretched down across his side. He also looks down toward the brunette, with a slight smile on his lips. To his left, a bowl with fruits can be seen on a bedside table. The background matches the pink of the bed spread, and the scene seems to be lit from the right of the reader.

Duet in darkness

Duet in Darkness front cover: Two women are displayed in an indoors setting. One of them, a black woman with short, straight black hair, sits on the wooden floor in a white negligee. Her left side faces the reader, and she sits with her left leg bent at the knee and turned outward toward her back, her foot bare. Her left hand is posed on her left calf and has a ring on its ring finger. Her right hand touches the edge of a blue and black cushioned sofa to her right. Her head is turned sharply to her left, and she looks straight out at the reader with a serious expression on her face. In the background, beside her on the sofa, a redhead with straight hair to her shoulder sits, with both legs folded atop the seat, feet facing right of the image. She is wearing a short, denim skirt and a brown, sleeveless blouse with buttons at the front and a V-neck. Her left hand is blocked by the figure who sits on the floor, and her right hand is holding a cigarette, elbow rested on the back of the chair. She is almost facing the reader; her body slightly twisted to her right. Her head faces the reader, but her sight is directed toward the other woman, with a serious expression. The scene is lit with natural light coming slightly from the left, casting a shadow of the black woman on the sofa and on the brick wall in the background.

Twilight girl

Twilight Girl front cover: Over a red, textured background, a bed with white sheets is placed sideways to the reader, at the bottom of the image. A pillow is placed on it, to the right of the reader. A blond woman with short, curly hair sits on the bed facing the reader, her body at a three-quarter angle facing right. Her legs are crossed under the knees and are at a diagonal angle, bare feet pointing out toward the left of the image. She wears a white slip and a white, strapless brassiere. Her right hand is placed over her chest as she leans on her left arm, which stretches out toward the pillow. Her head is slightly tilted to her right, and she looks down with a serious expression on her face. Behind the bed stands a brunette with short hair and bangs, to the far right of the image. She is wearing a black negligee and stands at a three-quarter angle facing left of the image. Her right arm is bent at the elbow; forearm placed over her stomach. Her left arm is also bent, elbow on her right hand stretched-out fingers, and a cigarette is lit in her hand, fingers bent and pointing upwards. She is looking down at the blonde with a stern expression, head raised slightly. The scene is lit from the top left, casting a shadow to the side of the bed facing the reader.

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.
