Dombrowski… has embraced the Fuller aesthetic in another way, too. Her book-jacket photo raised eyebrows when she submitted it to WesPress. Dombrowski looks less like an academic at an elite university than a sexy bombshell, with a tight, low-cut blouse, dangly earrings and a challenging gaze.
“I wanted to go with something that looked different. This book has a rather outrageous title,” she says. “I couldn’t be sitting on a chintz sofa with a cat on my lap. I wanted a noirish, femme-fatale look, like someone out of Fuller.”
