Frontispiece for The Tryst

The Tryst

This is the frontispiece for 'The Tryst', from The Green Man and Other Stories.

It represents the hero and heroine in a stylised embrace that blurs the distinctions between them, just as their love in the narrative fuses them together. Their faces are hidden and connected in reference to the secret link that binds them against their will.

You can read the story online or download the ebook version.

You can see full-quality copies of all the illustrations in The Green Man when you click the Preview Book link at blurb.
