Caroline Farr: The House of Landsdown
The House of Landsdown was published by Signet in November 1977 for Caroline Farr. Sally Lane saw the demon that lived at Landsdown who swore to kill her if she told what she saw. Could anyone in the house, her employer or his handsome nephew, save her?
Allan Kass illustrates one of my favorite gothic covers with this book! I love the auburn haired heroine in her purple gown or robe as she runs from the haunted house behind. She wears Kass's traditional gold jewelry: hoop earrings and a gold bangle bracelet!
Again, the touches of fog and cliff show why Allan was a great cover art illustrator! Enjoy!!
