Book covers were not necessarily designed by the illustrator of the book. Frank Calderon (1865-1943) illustrated this story of Reynard the Fox, but the cover was designed by A. A. Turbayne (1866-1940), an American book designer and book binding artist who worked largely in London. Turbayne’s principal work was the design of books and bindings and Reynard is considered to be one of his most charming designs.
