Here is an interim cover design that was used from 1978 until 1983 when William Schmidt’s “double” covers made their appearance. I admit I don’t know McGinnis was thinking with this cover. The yellow circle is obviously the title eye, but what’s going with the rest of it? A woodgrain background, a rusty, broken metal structure that doubles as a window, and a truly creepy, long-haired Travis. Or maybe that’s supposed to be the Darling Bread Boy; didn’t Peeping Trav spy on him through a window?

Update (09/25/2013): Corrected the printing date.
