Recently I posted some covers from Allen Figgis’ excellent Riverrun series of paperbacks and wondered if the designs were by William Bolger. I can confirm that they are in fact his work. Above are three more nice examples from the series. The Flying Swans was the first in the series and was published in 1969.

      Yes, it is one and the same person. I’ve tracked down a few more of his Riverrun covers and they are even nicer than the ones I’ve posted so far.
      They’ll be on show in the Winding Stair Bookshop over the next couple of weeks.
