DEAR GOD THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL !!!
I am usually sceptical of photographs on covers, but the two I have purchased in as many days have proven me wrong.
Harper Perennial has perfectly cast a physical double of Maturin ( HE LOOKS LIKE MATURIN DAMMIT!!!---specs and ALL). Though Paul Bettany captured the "spirit" of Maturin in the film, he never looked at all like him. This physical double is brilliant. I cannot believe the brilliance here.
Rendered inarticulate and prone to redundancy but am not at fault. OBSERVE THE BRILLIANCE !
