Fred Pfeiffer : I'll Never Be Young Again - 1971

by Daphne du Maurier

A Charming illustration that shows some
dreamers. I love art that shows contemplation.
This cover speaks to me on that level. I wonder
what the subjects are thinking. They look more like they
are in deep thought than looking out a window to me.
I get to participate in this Illustration not only as a
possible book purchaser but as a lover of art as well.
This piece is very pretty and the girl and her dress are
beautiful. The clock must be symbolic to the title/piece as they/we all
feel time ticking by and we can never go back... a great touch to the
    I wonder if Fred used another medium on this
as the background looks like colored pencils or pastel chalk.

Another recent find on a trip to Tucson in November 2010. It was a surprise to find yet another Pfeiffer illustration on a Pocket Daphne DuMaurier paperback. After finding 10 of these covers, I am hoping that there are more!

Once again, Fred gives us quite a lot to look at and study in this illustration.
