Hi, I've just posted a couple of Wuthering Heights books I own. One of them, a 1974 Bantam edition, appears to feature the same artwork as your Robert McGinnis picture above – only a cottage has been drawn in the background and scrubland added to the foreground. The woman looks identical though. Would the original artwork be changed so radically for a book cover? thanks, sara.
