1/5
​Jacob and the Stranger

by Sally Derby
Houghton Mifflin, 1994

  

“…stunning b/w illustrations: evanescent, suggestive, with the sinuous cats almost one with their shadowy backgrounds... 

...subtly dramatic characterizations, and, in the end, a sly touch of whimsical humor...

...An elegant piece of bookmaking...”

“Leonid Gore's eerie black-and-white pictures full of mystery and danger.”
