Friends of Unruh is a small group of people who have come together to publish a project Jack Unruh had been passionate about for years. As you may know, Jack recently passed away after struggling with cancer. For some time he had wanted to publish pages from the journals that accompanied his many hunting and fishing trips.
Jack Summerford has designed a beautiful book that incorporates pages from Unruh’s journals, as well as personal pieces stemming from sketches in the journals. Summerford started designing the book with Unruh while he was still able to participate in the book’s concept and layout.
“Jack Unruh’s journal contains his favorite selections from a lifetime’s worth of hunting and fishing. It’s a book by a great illustrator with a vivid awareness of — and thankfulness for — the gift of being alive.”
— BILL HEAVeY, editor-at-large for Field & Stream
Herring Press produced the book pro-bono. The 11 x 14 inch vertical, full-color, hardbound book with over 200 pages is available online. The price of the book is $75.
All proceeds will go into a scholarship fund Jack had established at Washington University in St. Louis, Unruh’s alma mater, in gratitude for the start it provided him in his career. Memorial gifts will also be directed to this fund.
