Carin Goldberg (art direction and design) worked with an illustration by Melanie Marder Parks, which is characterized by clear-cut lines and bright contrasting colors. Again we see pieces of womens’ clothing, but no face, hands, or feet. While Grierson’s photograph is melancholy, even eerie, Marder Parks’ depiction of a dancing women in a traditional costume sparkles with vitality.
Goldberg augmented the nocturnal mood by adding a broad frame of black. For the typography, she chose Novel Gothic, an Art Deco sans first issued by ATF in 1928. It here is used exclusively in capitals, with ample letterspacing. This look was apparently en vogue in New York in 1987, see Louise Fili’s book cover for Bigfoot Dreams from the same year. The back cover (not pictured) is set in various styles from Goudy Old Style.
