The Girl With The Violet Eyes

sg
This faux-vintage paperback book cover started out as a simple tribute portrait to the late Elizabeth Taylor, but I thought it would be fun to turn it into one of those quickie bio books that paperback publishers frequently cranked out to take advantage of current events--the more salacious, the better.

Elizabeth Taylor starred in some of the most iconic films ever made, and won two Best Actress Oscars; but of course a paperback book publisher looking to make a quick buck would only focus on the divorces and the headlines. 16 pages of photos!

R.I.P., Elizabeth Taylor.
