Cover Art Description
The busts of two women take up most of the visual space. One of them, a redhead, is on the right of the image and in the foreground, in profile, facing left of the reader and looking toward the same direction. Her hair is up on a bun to the left of her head, and she looks forward with wide open, blue eyes, lips slightly parted. Her torso is naked, and she is wearing an earring. Beside her, on her right and facing the reader, stands a brunette, partially covered by the redhead. Her wavy, loose hair flips over her shoulders, and she is looking at the redhead with half-open eyes. Her torso, too, is naked. The background is purplish blue, and the scene is lit from the front-left.
