Artwork of the Day: Backwater Woman (by Rudy Nappi)


by Rudy Nappi

The message of this cover appears to be that, if you’re going to live in the backwaters, you’re going to have to bare your midriff and show a little leg if you want to survive.  The arched eyebrow suggests that she thinks she had the situation under control but sticking your bare feet into yellow swamp water is not recommended, unless you want to risk attracting leeches and crocodiles.

This book was first published in 1957.  The cover is by Rudy Nappi, whose work I’ve frequently shared in the past and I’ll probably share even more of it in the future.
