Wow. Now this is a cover! Almost every edition of Cancel All Our Vows, foreign and domestic, chose to illustrate the seduction scene from the book. Can’t blame ’em, I guess; it’s the only scene I can think of off hand that is worth depicting. This one is outstanding. The couple is properly steamy but I particularly lilke the bottle of chianti and the world’s most sinister piece of driftwood.

There is a signature visible on the cover, but I can’t read it. Update (04/29/2013): The signature says “Allison”, which is the artist’s last name. No first name is available.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a Danish hardcover version of Cancel All Our Vows, titled 104° Fahrenheit, printed in 1955 by Hassing.
