I was reading p.devi's blog and became interested in The Secret History of the Pink Carnation and The Masque of the Black Tulip. Have I ever mentioned before that I am not only a Zorro fan but also a Sir Percy fangirl? Have I? Cause I should have. "Odd's Fish!"
So I went looking for publishing dates, etc. and found two covers.
American Version in color, Australian Version in tinted black and white
Whoa! Doesn't the chick on the Australian version remind you of some Billie Holliday wanna be with her bright pink gardenia in her hair? Spaghetti Straps? That necklace? I see 1950's written all over that image, not Regency.
But then I keep saying that I'm not a stickler for historical details.
