Pretty, Rooster - Spencer Little





Pretty, Rooster by Clay Matthews has a few cooks in the artistic kitchen: the foot on the cover is from a wire sculpture by San Diego's Spencer Little. The sculpture was photograph, with permission, by Misha M. Johnson, in the yard of one of the oldest homes in the neighborhood of Hillcrest.
