That seems more ominous and nervous (e.g., the shaky line of the drawing) than I'd expect for a Dorothy L. Sayers cover.

It's definitely not a usual cover for her work, which is probably why I picked it up despite having no plan to read it. Romek Marber did quite a few covers back in the 60s - I have a number of them now.
