DOROTHY SAYERS
Whose Body?
1979

Another of Hearst Publications’s Lord Peter Wimsey book covers. This was the only time I showed a person’s face, and he is most certainly deceased. I was very careful about dressing each set piece to include clues and “red herrings,” all in the appropriate Edwardian mode. That is obviously Lord Peter’s hand revealing the corpse, posed by a stock broker friend of the time.

Watercolor, Prismacolor Colored Pencils, on cold-pressed board.
