Not technically dust jackets, but here’s a selection of Nuno DaCosta's drawings for Vogue. As highly stylised drawings, they’re a bit gorgeous. As representations of women, however, they’re terrifying (fashion industry, observe my very frowny face). Ladies, remember: inserting several extra vertebrae into your neck is one of the first rules of high fashion. And never close your mouth. Also, if your cheekbones couldn’t double as diamond-cutters, you’re doing it wrong. Put down that sandwich and start pouting.
