Elaine Gignilliat

Elaine Gignilliat (pronounced “Jen-i-lat”) was one of the few women cover artists in the heyday of the bodice ripper. Her crisp style may be familiar to fans of thick, doorstopper epics by Day Taylor or Aleen Malcolm.

Like Harry Bennett, she painted many covers for Pocket Books’ Tapestry imprint, as well as covers for Victoria Holt/ Jean Plaidy.

She designed covers for hundreds of books as well as painted plates for the Danbury Mint.
