Skinwalkers [Michael Joseph LTD, hardback, 1988]

Full and detailed views of the British hardback edition of Tony Hillerman's Skinwalkers, which was published in 1988 by Michael Joseph LTD in London, England.

Design and Photography Credits: The cover was illustrated by Neil Breedon. This cover mimics the Sphere Books Ltd covers and follows the same format: a multimedia collage, over a rough canvas base, that incorporates folk art elements and and items that indicate plot elements in A Thief of Time. In this case, there is a sandpainting featuring a yei figure surrounded by flowers. These elements are framed by blue and white course string embroidery, with a secondary framing device of a green, blue, and white colored geometric diamond pattern. A smattering of blood and feathers, neither of which manifest in the novel, provide the finishing touches.

This edition contains both front and back fold-outs of the hardback dust cover. The front fold-out contains a brief synopsis of the novel and the back fold-out contains a brief biography of Tony Hillerman.
