The illustrations for "On Hand ... Offhand: Books" are identical to those from the July 1957 issue, which are assigned to John Giunta; though one differs in this issue in that it is not signed.

Offhand: Books", but listed at the review itself as "On Hand: A Book", with a separate "Offhand" section.
