0141 Dress Her in Indigo

October 18, 2011
  • Title: Dress Her in Indigo
  • Language: English
  • Country: USA
  • Format: Hardcover
  • Year: 1985
  • Publisher: GK Hall
  • Collection: Thorndike Press
  • ISBN-10: 0816138222

In the 1980s, GK Hall reprinted the Travis McGee series and a couple of other Johnny Mac books in hardcover large print editions. These copies are hard to find, so you’ll see them frequently in the Milk Carton. Generally, the cover art of the ones I have found is uninspiring (although Lavender isn’t half bad). This is typical.

I don’t get this cover at all. Is that a ship speeding to the left in the background, or is it supposed to be a landscape? Smoke coming from its funnel or smoke from a volcano? Why has a large pie-shaped piece been cut from the girl? And why can’t I find a better quality image than this?

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a USA hardcover version of Dress Her in Indigo, printed in 1999 by Random House under their Value Publishing imprint (ISBN-10 0517385759, ISBN-13 9780517385753).
