Talking God [First Edition Book Jacket, hardback, 1989]

This is the full and detailed views of the dust jacket for the first edition of Talking God, the ninth book in Tony Hillerman's Navajo Mystery Series. The dust jacket was designed by Peter Thorpe, who has designed and illustrated over 40 Hillerman editions and whose work has become the iconic imagery associated with Hillerman's novels. The design features the pictorial representation of Talking God in the center with Washington D.C. buildings and monuments to either side. Unlike many Hillerman novels, a great deal of the book takes place in Washington DC rather than in the Southwest.
