I've made no secret of my love for cover art, and my almost obsessive hunt for certain artists of Ngaio Marsh's covers. One of these is Philip Hood. I have rather fallen for the cover art that are paintings, I find them expressive and far more interesting than cover art that is photography based.
Philip Hood's cover art isn't quite as menacing as those of Justin Todd, which you can check out here. But I find Hood's work thoughtful and I think they capture the mood of the story very well. These are all Fontana paperbacks.
Hand in Glove (1974 ed) Love the interesting angle of this cover, looking up from in the hole.
Death and the Dancing Footman (1975 ed) Lots of brooding here.
Artists in Crime (1975 ed) Plenty of anatomy on display in this one! (And excuse the scratchy bit where someone had committed the crime of the price sticker on the cover!)
Colour Scheme (1976 ed) Check out the New Zealand thermal hot pools.
I'm still looking for more of Philip Hood's covers, so if you see any up for sale, let me know - because a girl can never have too many books...
