This is part of a picture of Jane I made in 1966. I had been planning to use the entire image as an inset. I sent a version to my son Ethan, and he immediately cropped the image and mocked up a different cover. I hated to give up the larger image, but his version was so much better than mine that I had to use it.


You can see that the Japanese god print in the frame had to be blanked out, but otherwise it's a simple crop. I liked the L-shapes that run down to the lower left.

Another of Jane (also cropped) became the cover for Becky Cooper's fine book about the murder, We Keep the Dead Close.
