Emma Darby: Into the Arena
Into the Arena is the other book by Emma Darby illustrated by Allan Kass. It's a Signet publication from April 1973. Celia is done dealing with her husband's affairs and decides to do something about it.
Allan Kass illustrates our couple in a pensive moment. Our hero is made human by his holding the family cat. I really like seeing Allan's contemporary illustrations as evidenced by our hero with the beard! Our heroine is calm in feature, but seems awkward towards the hero. I like the montage painting behind them. Note Allan's signature under the flowers.
