An attractive cover design, made for a collection of Turkish short stories, was designed by a brilliant Ottoman / Turkish illustrator and painter Münif Fehim (1899-1982), famous for his book and magazine illustrations.

Münif Fehim was a son of a famous Ottoman actor and director Ahmet Fehim (1856-1930) and started working early as a stage and costume designer. Over the decades he illustrated several book covers, numberless newspapers and Turkish satiric magazines. In 1937, he hosted his first exhibition, together with the caricaturist Cemal Nadir.

Worldcat only lists one institutional example (Boğaziçi University Library, Istanbul).
