“Whisper To Me In The Starlight” a popular song with lyrics by John Steel and Music by Jerry Jarnagin. The cover art is by one of the Starmer brothers. The brothers William Austin Starmer and Frederick Waite Starmer were noted sheet music cover artists. Their fluid use of color, as well as the ability to draw realistic people simply but elegantly without delving into caricature unless it was called for is seen throughout their work. There is a mix of still lifes with simply patterned covers, and their command of lettering in interestingly derived fonts is also evident. Style on many of the covers is paramount, whether it be for fashion or for fadeaways. The brothers often captured subjects in a candid photographic sense that made the drawings look very natural.
