This book jacket was one of Fred’s first, and possibly the very first. At this early stage of his career, he was newly enchanted by the prospect of reading every word of the novels he was being asked to present in visual form. He loved this one. The Unguentines were a couple who spent their entire married life on a land-covered barge, steering clear of civilization. He greatly enjoyed finding a way to depict their tiny universe.
