Dell'Orco created the illustration for the cover of the Fontana book, A Free Agent, a love story set against the backdrop of the Cold War, written by Frederic Wakeman in 1964. Dell’Orco often works with one bold, abstract colour as the background, while detailed action dominates the foreground and appears to burst off the page. This graphic layering gives his cover illustration a dynamic effect.
