Eric Fraser was commissioned to design a dust jacket for the 1979 edition of Brother Dusty-Feet, a children’s novel by Rosemary Sutcliff (1920-1992) set in Elizabethan England. However, the project was eventually given to C Walter Hodges (1909-2004), a specialist in the Elizabethan period, who had illustrated the original edition in 1952.
