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.
