Elizabeth Kolbert's New Yorker review 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.


Ellie Forman-Peck's illustration of British journalist, Melanie Phillips, for Standpoint's review of the Mayfair launch of her company, Electric Media.


 David Levine's illustration of author, Frank McCourt, for New York Review of Books review of Angela's Ashes (Scribner).
