Cover Art Description
The setting is a living room with a green sofa, two coffee tables, and paintings on the background wall. A redhead lies on her back on the sofa, with her head propped on a white pillow, to the left of the reader. Her hair is in disarray and seems to be long and loose. She is wearing a white negligee, her right breast partially visible. Her legs are bent and she is touching her hair with both hands. She is looking up, with a slight smile and parted lips, at a brunette with short hair who stands in front of the sofa with her back fully towards the reader. She is wearing a black slip with lace and high heels, and is removing what appears to be a white silk blouse. Her head is tilted to the left and bowed forward, as if looking directly at the redhead on the sofa. In the foreground, to the right of the reader, a round coffee table with a glass top holds an ashtray. To the left of the reader, another table, wooden, holds a glass of wine. Behind the sofa, there is a wall with paintings and a wall candle holder. The scene is lit from the left of the reader, and a shadow is cast toward the top right.
