The painting on which I collaborated most closely with the author. Published by Jonathan Cape, 1966.

"A remarkable cover in his more complex and illusive style. I have lost count of those who have written saying that they originally bought the book solely on the strength of that mysterious collection of masks and flowers that Tom created."
John Fowles

"The painting's rich blend of realism and surrealism, with its vivid, colourful images that thinly veiled elaborate undertones and symbolism, reflects the whole mood of Fowles' novel. It's the perfect aperitif. It seems to arouse in people a curiousity that the book's uncanny suspense keeps up throughout its six hundred pages."
From an article by Jonathan Cape publishers, in The Bookseller

"This dust jacket features a stunning design by Tom Adams."
Bob Goosman, from an article 'Collecting John Fowles' published in Firsts magazine
