Barbosa's jackets for the Heyer romances are completely iconic, but many of the wraparound variety seem to be open to the criticism that their composition is oblivious to the spinal element, which of course cuts off to all intents and purposes the left side of the image; in the case of this one, the spine fold bisects the carriage and the mansion atop the distant hill.
