The cover illustration is an oil on paper painting by Grace Hartigan, Oranges (1953). The 8 x 11 painting was created as a cover for the poem sequence "Oranges" by Frank O’Hara (1953). The painting is from the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library, Robert W. Woodruff Library, Emory University. In 1952 Hartigan produced a dozen paintings based on a series of twelve poems by O’Hara. The paintings were exhibited for the first time at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York in the spring of 1953. Oranges is just one of the treasures from the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library, a 60,000-volume collection of the English-language poetry presented to Emory by the Poets Trust in 1994.
