Every Diamond Dream
Leo and Diane Dillon’s art
By Leo Dillon & Diane Dillon
Iwould love to review “the complete collection of book coversillustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon” but as far as I can tell, sucha volume does not exist. What do exist: TheArt of Leo & Diane Dillon (1981)and ToEvery Thing There Is a Season: Verses from Ecclesiastes (1998).Collections I cannot review because 1) I don’t own either and 2)I’ve never seen either. I do not mind all that much, because thefirst collection does not seem to have been well-received and thesecond looks too, um, religious for my taste.
Butthe Dillons do have a special place in my heart and I would love to direct someattention their way. So I am going to talk aboutmy favourite Dillon covers.
My enjoyment of their work began with this specific set of covers.
