  • Cover Art Gaze is exactly "Gaze toward reader"

Twilight women

Two female heads are shown, faces looking straight forward. One face is closer to the foreground, on the left, and partly covers the other one. The face of the one in the foreground is coloured in bright pink and that of the one in the background is coloured in purple. Both have darkened, long straight hair, depicted in solid black ink. Based on the tones of colour used for the faces, and on the use of the black, the artist conveys the light in the scene as a hard light that comes from the front left.

Strange ones (The)

The Strange Ones front cover. A woman in a satin nightgown is standing behind the headboard or footboard of a green, metal-framed bed shown in the foreground at a slight angle. The rest of the bed is outside the frame. She has long hair partially tied up at the back of her head. The straps of her nightgown are hanging over her arms, partially showing her chest. Both her arms are raised behind her head as if she were rearranging her hair. She is shown in profile from her thighs up, in the center of the image, her left side facing the reader. Her eyes are slightly closed, looking to her left, directly toward the reader. Behind her, to the right of the image, a man is shown leaning on his forearms against a door painted olive-green. His forehead is on his fists, which touch the door. His expression is tense or stressed. He is fully dressed in a long-sleeved, striped shirt, black pants and a belt. He is in full profile, the right side of his body facing the reader, and can be viewed from his knees up. The scene is lit from the front left.

Chris

Chris front cover. The face of a blond woman with head leaned back looking directly toward the reader and bathed in a red light dominates the image on all the edges, as a background. Her mouth is in rest and her eyes are half-closed. To the bottom right, and partially covering the blonde's face, another figure of a blonde is seen, with her back to the reader. She has long, wavy hair, bangs hanging over her eyebrows. Her body is twisted to the front and left, and her head hangs down to the left, equally turned and with eye closed. Her arms are crossed across her chest, both hands clasped to the other arm. She wears a black skirt that is unzipped at the back and her entire back is bare. The scene is lit from the front-left.

Twisted year (The)

The Twisted Year front cover. On a black background, the body of a woman and three women's heads, floating in the space over a texture of purple are displayed. The full-bodied woman is a blonde who sits up, torso lifted and legs across a bed covered with a purple blanket. Her right leg is bent under the left one, which also bends slightly. Her body faces the reader, head towards the left of the image. She is supported on her right, extended arm to the side. Her other hand rests on the bed, in front of her. She is wearing a white, full-body slip and shoes that have crossed straps at the top of the foot. Her head is bowed, and her eyes look down, slightly towards her left. Above her on the left, three monochromatic, floating heads are seen in a vertical sequence. Two brunettes at top and bottom, and a blonde in the center., with a cigarette hanging from her lips. The brunette at the top looks straight at the reader. The blonde has short hair, and her head is slightly turned to her left, with a cigarette hanging from her lips. The brunette at the bottom has hair to her nape and looks straight on to the blonde on the bed. Hard light comes from the front left, illuminating mostly the blonde on the bed.

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.
