Riverrun 17 – Birds’ Nest Soup – Hanna Greally

Riverrun was an imprint of Allen Figgis and featured some beautiful covers in it’s short run. The above examples are from 1969-1970. The designs are uncredited but I wonder if they are the work of William Bolger who designed the lovely “Bed that went Whoosh!” series for Figgis in the sixties?
