Last Letters from Hav
Jacket design and illustration: Fred Marcellino
Publisher: Random House
Edition: First Edition, Hardcover
Another book by author Jan Morris, which was shortlisted for the 1985 Booker Prize for Fiction. When it seemed appropriate, Fred loved paying homage to his favorite artists, as here. For this first edition jacket, he presents a variation on one of de Chirico’s 1913 piazza scenes. The mood conveyed exactly suits Morris’s strange travelogue.
