(12.5x19.5cm) Original'Rough' for the jacket on the UK first of Eichler's Madison Avenue-set advertising thriller. Gouache on card, laid down on thick black paper, closely resembling but not quite identical to the final design as published by Hammond and Hammond, one of Sax's regular clients during this phase of his career. The image comes from a substantial collection of Sax's jacket designs. On first publication the Spectator responded: 'Rather a lot of murders in the glossy, neurotic world inhabited by New York's thirty-thousand-dollars- a-year advertising executives. Background more skilfully done than plot or people, but as smoothly readable, all round, as a Satevepost ad.'
