U.K Heyer Paperbacks - c.1976-1983
These covers are believed to be all by John Rose, though only a few are signed with his name. I consider them to be some of the most aesthetically pleasing and artistically satisfying covers ever to grace the covers of Heyer paperbacks. Even though there are quite a few covers that aren't perfect or seem peculiar (Why is Eugenia Wraxton on The Grand Sophy cover? And what a odd subject choice for Devil's Cub...), and the artist assumes that evening dresses were everyday Regency clothing, he has still managed to capture the essence and spirit of Heyer's books with vigour, verve, general good taste, and elegance. One feels the Divine Georgette would have strongly approved of these covers.

Updated April 6th, The Conqueror (thanks Laurie!) and Regency Buck added to the index; John Rose's name corrected (not Paul Rose, as was incorrectly stated).
