green ginger Virago book Cover
Virago christa cover

In 1978, Carmen Calill saw reproductions of my paintings in early editions of Spare Rib and wrote to me to ask if she could buy some with a view to using them on Virago book covers, as appropriate titles arose. A year or so later, these two books appeared, and she bought several of my dolphin paintings too, which said she wanted for her kitchen. Just a year before she died, she told me they were still there and the one called, Hello Frankie, (below) still greeted her every morning.
