Description
Book jacket design for Jazz Cleopatra. On orange-brown ground, a one-toned black photograph of the figure of Josephine Baker. She appears nude, holding her hands to her chest, with long chains of pearls wrapped around her hands and dangling down the length of her body. She also holds a length of fabric, possibly a dress. She wears makeup and large earrings and stands in an abstract rocky landscape. Stylized text above, below, and at the spine in black and purple. Doubleday colophon appears at lower left, a dolphin curved around an anchor.
