Please send me the proof of the dedication page as soon as possible. You remember the text is: For Jan5, because he likes narrative. I’ve never seen a proof of it yet.
I like the jacket design6
fairly well, but I agree with you that it’s too
fussy—too much like an illustration. I had hoped for something simple in
design and brilliant in color. The
blue blue behind
the lettering seems to me rather dark and heavy for a
jacket. I enclose a little sketch which might give a suggestion—I have no
crayons here to indicate the colors.
If you’ve no time to experiment further, I will be satisfied with this sketch of Mr. Fall’s7, however. Don’t hold anything up in order to send me proofs of the jacket. If you are satisfied I think I will be.Faithfully Willa Cather
