Locus online reports that Fred Marcellino, the author and illustrator of the award-winning children's book I, Crocodile died July 12. He was 61. He was a freelance designer who many say changed the way modern book covers are designed. His most famous cover painting is probably the cover for Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. He designed the covers for a large number of fantasy and children's books, illustrated many children's books, and wrote and illustrated a number of his own.
