An editor with Harper & Row stated that Silverstein had made the original illustrations “scratchy” like his cartoons for Playboy, but that he later reworked the art in a “more pared-down and much sweeter style.” The final black-and-white drawings have been described as “unadorned… visual minimalism.” Harper & Row published a small first edition of the book, consisting of only 5,000–7,500 copies, in 1964.
