Presenting for you, Gentle Reader, the amazing cover art for Etiquette & Espionage from Japan.
This art is for the translation, not a manga version. I love the way they depict the balconies of the school. It’s very similar to how I imagined them. The book has been out in Japan for a while and I saw the cover when it was tweeted at me a little while ago, but this is the offical image. Enjoy!

“The one obligatory time for a man to send out his own cards was upon his marriage, the receipt of the card signaling that you were respectable enough to be retained as a friend even though the new groom’s bachelor days were now over. When a man marries, it is understood that all former acquaintance ends, unless he intimates a desire to renew it, by sending you his own and his wife’s card.”
