As well as being a writer and playwright, Ronald Duncan also managed a farm in North Devon. In May 1946, the first weekly instalment of Duncan's Jan's Journal appeared in the Evening Standard newspaper. The column was filled with tales from the country, primed for an urban audience. The Blue Fox, alongside Jan's Journal (1949) and Jan at the Blue Fox (1952), brings together a selection of the columns. Cecil Beaton provides an illustration for the dust jacket, depicting the Blue Fox pub sign. The illustrations and decorative endpapers are by another artist, Michael Hanson (Duncan's brother-in-law).
