Title: The Cardinal and the Queen
Author: Evelyn Anthony
Cover artist: uncredited
Best things about this front cover:
- I am not quite convinced that people in the 17th century dressed like this or had hairstyles like this.
- What is she doing with her hands/fingers? I understand she has to keep that pointless sash up somehow but it looks like she's saying "Kneel! Right here! You heard me!"
- In case you are wondering, the "Cardinal" is Cardinal Richelieu, the "Queen" is Anne of Austria (Queen of Louis XIII), and the canopied bed in the background means they are totally doing it.
