Elizabeth Kolbert's New Yorkerreview of Denying to the Grave by Drs. Sara and Jack Gorman (Oxford University Press) was accompanied by a powerful Gérard DuBois illustration (above). It brought to mind other illustrations commissioned in connection with Balaban books and authors:
Anya Ulinich's portrait of Ann Goldberg, translator, The Complete Works of Primo Levi, edited by Robert Weil (Liveright/W.W. Norton & Co.) for a Joshua Furst interview in the Forward.
Henning Wagenbreth illustration of Stephen King for Jim Windolf's review of Lisey's Story (Scribner) in The New York Times.
