Today’s sad and unexpected news combines elements of our last two posts. The news is of the death of Dugald Stermer, who was many things during his varied career, including the editor of the radical 60s magazine, Ramparts. He was also a stunning artist. One of my favorite of his drawings was the cover he did for my book, Return of the Osprey. He also drew a bird in flight for the back, and as an added touch he painted an osprey egg for the back flap. These drawings alone give you a sense of craftsmanship, dedication, and grace he brought to all his work. We need more human beings like Dugald Stermer on this planet. He will be sorely missed.
