Overheard in 1955

‘When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon.

Hi Mary, I love the covers of your books. Except the ones where the ladies' heads are covered. What? The photographer couldn't get a model release? The artist can't paint faces? I find it very disturbing that the woman's body is all that's worth showing. I like to see the heroine and/or hero on the cover. So I'm wondering, how do you feel about those covers?

I like to picture the model for myself. I prefer books that let me have that.

Having said that, I have a couple of covers WITH faces and, beginning in August, all of them are going to have faces. And you know what? They're fun.

So we're abandoning the headless heroine style. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing the new covers. I think, as a graphic artist, these covers just don't sit right for me. But I'm over it. LOL. However, they did attract my attention, so they're doing their job.
