A very dramatic painting of a leaping salmon (by artist D W Ovenden) features on the cover of the last of the original colour series, published in 1963. Featuring slightly older looking portraits of our two I-Spy spotters, the book carries the warning “Fishermen are friendly people, but they won’t be of you frighten their fish…”
Ovenden’s work inside is excellent as well.
