Book Jacket Commissions

Frontier Books, published by W. J. Gage Limited-Toronto, featured historical novels especially written by Canadian authors for boys and girls from 10-14. Each book took readers into a different part of Canada at a different period in its history; each story was built around the life of a person who made a contribution to the exploration or development of Canada.

Doug was hired to do cover artwork for the first of four Frontier Books, published in 1961.

The Macmillan Company of Canada Limited-Toronto hired Doug for cover artwork of the 1966 paperback edition of Rumer Godden's popular novel.

Doug was commissioned by Canadian publisher McClelland and Stewart Limited to do cover artwork for the 1966 paperback by Leslie McFarlane, who's written numerous television, radio and film scripts.
