Oh, I like this one! Yes, it’s a photo cover and therefore unfit for consumption by anyone with a smattering of good taste, but it is simple, powerful, and beautifully composed.

Shivers are running up and down my back from the screech that must be coming from those fingernails scraping down that wooden wall. Her fingers are placed so it looks like she scratched two deep grooves in the wood. It’s a perfect Fear Hand.™

The wall is part of some sort of old shed. I like the cracks and the peeling paint. The putrid green paint contrasts nicely with the blue cover.

If that is an engagement ring, it’s on the wrong hand.
