I have to say--I've not came across many covers in my time, with an extended view and distance within the cover art. This one makes the whole sinister appeal more fascinating because it appears as the poor girl has had a long stretch of ground covered to escape that hellhole. Perhaps there is a body of water that separates it, too! LOL

That's a beautiful one, Marie. What book is it from?

Ah got me; I really don't know. I was aiming to post it, to see if anyone in the group could pin-point it. XD So, I was actually dragging and dropping it into Google IMAGES to get a better search, and I DID find a blown-up version.

Well, hopefully we'll spot it someday. I'd love to read a pulp with that gorgeousness pasted on the front.

I unearthed this one earlier and added it to GRs; I've never seen it before--but that cliffside seems so unrealistic? :D Almost doll-like terrain models. It was a scan I had to crop/cut out of a much larger image, then I did some corrective coloring, sharpening & tone contrasting in Photoshop.

My photobucket URL, which should blow it up tremendously:

Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* (erinpaperbackstash) I love Gothic covers (obviously). Even did a post on it a long time ago on my book site

Mermarie, that first picture is amazing - love the colors and you're right, she's actually covered quite a distance and is resting by a tree after fleeing :) At least we can imagine so... Would be a neat narrow painting in a library.

Love it - but this to me is even more of a vintage inside sleeve of a 80s type straight-out horror novel
