Back Matter

About the Cover Image

Again our cover art is by Donald Justice. On the front, a scene from a railroad yard in northern Florida, pastel on paper, 5 1/4 x 15 1/4; on the back a linocut entitled "Payday," 4 x 6 inches. We should add that his painting of a store front on our first issue this year was a scene from Boston, Georgia rather than from Miami.
