It wasn't often that Fred was invited to design a jacket for a book of poems. In some ways the task was akin to inventing the imagery for record albums, which had been his specialty in earlier years. All he had to work with as a jumping-off point, in both instances, was the title. Here his mastery of airbrush technique served to create a haunting image that encapsulated the subject at hand.
