Mammographic cover art: Shambleau

Here’s some interesting mammographic cover art from the late 1970s: Shambleau (J’ai Lu, 1979, No. 415), a French paperback containing some of Catherine L. Moore’s mid-twentieth-century stories, including the classic SF-Horror, Medusa-on-Mars title tale, “Shambleau” (1933). Note what appears to be a subtle change to Shambleau’s face when this paperback was reprinted again by J’ai Lu in 1987. Is it just me, or does Shambleau look a tad older and a bit more serious in 1987?
