Yesterday’s Lily (1980), a collection of painting and illustration work published by Dragon’s Dream. Artist Jeffrey Jones, whose death was announced this week, transitioned to Jeffrey Catherine Jones in the late 1990s so we’ll honour that here and won’t insist on referring to her as “he” as I’ve been seeing on some other websites. Jones’ […]
