Artwork of the Day: The Long Night (by Howell Dodd)


by Howell Dodd

It may have been a hasty marriage but it was a very long night. This book was originally published in 1952 and what I like about the cover is the ambiguity. Is she smiling at someone who is watching from the street below? Is she smiling to herself because she’s about to con the man with the cigarette? Or is she just happy to be inside for the night with her lover?

The cover artist is Howell Dodd, who has been featured before on this site and who will be featured in the future.
