Summary expansion
On the left is a photograph of Updike, wearing a tweed jacket, half-smiling, and looking sideways; on the right is a color reproduction of the cover of "Trust me" in black, white, and blue, featuring the figure of Icarus falling into the sea as the wax holding his wings in place starts to melt. In the center is the caption, printed in black on white: "Trust me: stories of husbands and wives and lovers." The verso of the placard contains two cardboard flaps which fold flat, and, when opened, serve to prop the placard upright on a table. The placard was probably created by Updike's publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. and intended for use on a table in a bookstore to announce the arrival of stacks of freshly-printed copies of "Trust me," or as advertisement at a book signing
