Top Tip - put product links in (where possible) so's we can all see the covers easily

alot of paperbacks that look like they aimed at a female demographic seem to feature lots of pictures of feet and shoes - is this to pick up the niche fetish crowd - or is it because, like Imelda Marcos, women just have to buy things that may have some shoe like qualities..

Pandoras Box would not have just the legs on.
Sorry that was really quite smutty but I yeilded to temptation.
The book you are refering to is The Koran but I'm not sure who wrote it. Could be God had a hand (or leg) in it.

For some reason my mind went straight to 'Virgin Soldiers' by Leslie Thomas but when I looked it up - different picture from the one I had in mind.


jacket sleeves / paperback front covers change with regular monotony. What might have been appropriate 10 (or more) years ago wouldn't see the light of day with the current PC madness that governs everything we do (or can't do) today.

Sorry - rant over but happy hunting !

The child's legs with the anklets and the offerings on the water are the cover for 'In the Shadow of Crows' by David Charles Manners. A beautiful and intriguing cover.

I think it is a brilliant cover design. It really intrigued me before I read the book. I can really relate to the child on the cover, I don't need to see the face. The legs say it all, and the little burning offerings in the water are so symbolic of the religious symbols and rituals mentioned in such fascinating detail in the story. It is a wonderful story. I would recommend it to anyone who lives a good book.

The Friday night knitting club by Kate Jacobs and Needles and Pearls by Gil McNeil both have pictures of legs on their front covers.

Adele Parks's books usually feature just a pair of legs - is it one of those?

I seem to remember it being a 'lying down in the summer grass' style of cover.
