About the Cover Art
Jess Landau is a fine artist and photographer whose work involves themes of culture, community, personality development, and human desires for interpersonal connection. In 2014, she received her BFA in photography and art therapy from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
The cover art shows a portrait printed on the inner surface of an eggshell (using liquid emulsion, a chemical applied in alternative darkroom printing). It comes from a series called Growth, which Landau created in an effort to heal after suddenly losing a childhood friend to suicide. Handling the eggshell during the photographic printing process exemplified the time needed to appreciate present moments, along with the importance of reflecting on life’s fragility.
