The Israeli publishing house Schocken printed several Travis McGee books with a “paperdoll” theme. I like them. They’re clever, different, and they maintain the color theme. Motion is very hard for an artist to capture, but the unknown artist conveys the action of the fight with what are essentially silhouettes. Nice.
