Usual Suspects

Found this on twitter,From Niel

nothingbutthedreams:
I just rediscovered how glorious this image is so excuse me while I laugh uncontrollably every time I look at it again.
It was taken in Kensal Green Cemetery in February.
Terry borrowed the white jacket from our editor, Malcolm Edwards, and grumbled that it did nothing to keep him warm on a very cold day.
“Sometimes you have to be cold to look cool,” I told him.
“It’s all right for you,” he said. “You’re wearing a leather jacket.”
“You could wear a leather jacket too.”
“I’m wearing white,” said Terry, pointedly. “That way, when they come after us for writing a blasphemous book, they’ll know I’m the nice one.”
(After the photo was taken we noticed the bat-winged hourglass, which we hadn’t seen during the photo session, and requested bat-winged hourglasses as a design motif in the book.)

Great picture! I've seen it before, but it's been a long time.

:D That bat-winged hourglass is very Gothic and just perfect.

Saw this on tumblr earlier - This photo is the reason that I bought this copy of the book (I normally buy paperbacks as they tend to be cheaper)
