The Ghostway [Sphere Books Ltd, British edition, 1989]

The full and detailed views of the Sphere Books Ltd. paperback edition of Tony Hillerman's The Ghostway, the sixth novel in Navajo Mystery Series and third novel featuring Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police. Sphere books Ltd is a continuation of the Gollanz Ltd publishing house located in London, England, who first published a British edition of The Ghostway in 1985. Sphere books published several of Hillerman's novels, and each of their covers follow a similar format: a multimedia collage, over a rough canvas base, that incorporates folk art elements and kitschy signifiers of the novels' plot elements. In this case, two feathers, one dipped in red paint or blood, surrounded by four different herbs, presumably representing contents of a medicine bundle, are framed by multicolored course string embroidery, with a secondary framing device of abstract and repeated geometric patterns.
