Does anybody know this man?

November 4, 2009

The Large Print edition of Persona Non Grata has now been published with this fine chap on the cover:

Picture of legionary re-enactor on book cover

Author’s aren’t consulted about Large Print covers (or at least, I’m not) so there was no chance to ask where this shot was taken. I’d love to know because the background is not unlike Corbridge, where I spent many happy hours researching the second of  Ruso’s  adventures.

If anyone knows who the tip of that nose belongs to, please pass on my thanks.

  1. Gosh, that’s an arresting cover! I suppose you’ve tried the various Roman re-enactment groups? Mark you, they might get a bit touchy if it’s one of their chaps and there’s no acknowledgment of them on the jacket. But that would be the publisher’s problem, of course.


  2. No I haven’t tried, for the very reasons you mention! But if anybody does come up with any info. I’d be delighted to give the mystery man an acknowledgement on the blog.


  3. Ms. Downie, are large-print editions available only in the UK?


    • Hi Laurie,
      No, in fact that’s the American edition – you should be able to find all of them in the US. I ought to mention that on the ‘books’ pages – thanks for pointing it out.

      • Ooh, I’ll have to track them down…I need to give my regular hardcovers to the daughter — my eyes are just too bad for reading them to be a pleasure. Audio books are a terrific blessing — but the joy of a book in the hand and coffee at my elbow is irreplaceable!
