This cover is based on a painting by ire'ne's brother Mois├ęs.


We couldn't use the entire image, because it was not proportioned properly for a book cover. It was too busy for an entire cover (this is always a problem, no matter what the source material -- if I can't lay text over it, I can't use it as a full cover).


So, as I have for other covers, I used the art as an inset.


ire'ne wanted the green, which works well. I would likely have gone with the blue you see at the bottom, looking to make the inset boundary indistinct there.


If memory serves, I think I might have flipped the image in order to get the opening-out triangle at the bottom right.
