"Richard Michelson's essay 'Ted, Leonard (and Me)' (PDF) was published in The South Carolina Review, Volume 40, Number 2, Spring 2008.

In the same issue, there is an essay on the collaboration between Baskin and Hughes over Hughes' Howls & Whispers, with some discussion and comment on the poems: Elizabeth Stansell: Masks and Whispers: The Complementary Poetry of Richard Michelson and Ted Hughes (PDF).

Richard Michelson's site has a large selection of images of the work of Leonard Baskin: http://www.rmichelson.com/Leonard-Baskin.html. Linked under 'Themes'  or directly lower down the page under 'Raptors', are a number of Crow images. The Gehenna Press (linked on the home page under 'Print Work') published a number of Ted Hughes' Limited Editions illustrated by Baskin.

http://rmc.library.cornell.edu/baskin/ also has some fine Baskin images and references to his collaboration with Hughes."
