Robert B. Parker's New Book In October Has Elegant Cover!

This is absolutely one of the best covers I've seen on a book lately. I really miss the days when artists drew covers. Way too many of them these days are churned out of PhotoShop (although there are some good ones), but it seems some of the eloquence of the past has gone by the wayside.

Without reading the blurb at Amazon, you can tell something has gone seriously wrong in a marriage and someone is celebrating it. This image has been in my mind since I saw it yesterday. I know. I probably obsess too much. But I liked this one a lot for its simplicity and -- yet -- dasdardliness and wanted to share.
