Literature

Black-and-white image of a female figure, shown from the hips up. Her body is in profile, facing towards the left side of the image, but her head is turned facing the viewer. She is looking off to the right side of the image. Her back and chest is covered, but her proper left arm is bare. There is a watch band or bracelet on her left wrist. Her left index finger is touching her chin in a flirtatious manner.
