Ellen Fitzgerald: The Player Knight
July 1989 saw the publication of The Player Knight, a Signet regency by Ellen Fitzgerald. Arabella Ashmore knows that a lady never performs on the stage, but is intrigued with the idea when she sees her best friend become an actress and also meets the dashing actor, Julian Sherlay!
Allan Kass illustrates our couple outside during sunset on a cold day. Our heroine wears a dark blue cloak, which has figured in a few of his illustrations!! Our hero's dark green jacket must have also been a popular color choice for the dashing regency buck! I feel as if this elegant pair doesn't belong, but are visiting, the setting where they stand.
