Freud was 22 when he illustrated the poems of Nicholas Moore for The Glass Tower . It was his first illustrated book, with The Equilibriad (1948) being the second and last. Freud's drawings are of the natural world, animals and landscapes, and they reflect the symbolic and hallucinatory nature of Moore's poetry.
