In all there are three books detailing Joy's work. In addition a book entitled 'Tributes from her friends' was produced following her death in 1991. This, if nothing else, demonstrates the affection and regard that people held for her.

In That Place (1987), a collection of fifty-two portrait drawings.
A Point of Departure (1967), with engravings by Richard Shirley Smith*
Twelve Months of the Year (1981), with engravings by Simon Brett*
Tributes from her friends (1991), various recollections.
* Featured Artists.

In that Place (1987)
Published by Libanus Press and featuring a collection of 52 drawings.

While the binding might not initially look spectacular, it is a superb piece of work that befits such a book. It is adorned on the front and rear with a repetitive pattern featuring the 'F' logo that Joy commonly used to sign her work, with an offset shadow.

The spine is then leather bound with gold-block lettering and the entire book is presented in a rigid slipcase covered with a plain brown material.

The original leaflet has been used for the purpose of illustration.

A Point of Departure (1967)
A collaboration between Joy and Richard Shirley Smith, producing a collection of 30 poems with exquisite illustrations.

More details to follow.

Twelve Months of the Year (1981)
Details to follow.

Tributes from her friends (1991)
Featuring various recollections of her friends and family.

In addition, the final book published that related to Joy was Tributes from her friends. Self-explanatory, this was published after her death and contains various fond and poignant memories from her friends and family.

The cover (right) is not from this book, but the Memorial Service.
