There are only a handful of Lippincott photo covers, and several of them are truly dreadful. The worst offenders seem to be whipped up on the spur of the moment from stock photos of women who never look like I expect the women in a Travis McGee story to look. They’re too stilted. Too posed. Too artificial. This one is better than some, but I still find it boring.

It’s been a few years since I have read this story, so perhaps I’m not clear on the details of the plot, but I don’t recall photography playing a part. Perhaps the cover designer was thinking of The Quick Red Fox.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a US paperback edition of The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper, printed in 1991 by Fawcett as under their Cardinal Press imprint (ISBN-10 0747407320, ISBN-13 9780747407324).
