Art is a truly universal language. A song, a painting, a sculpture can all call to you in different ways, but when they do, you feel it deep inside your core. When Alessandro started working on Pax’s cover, he found on Deviantart a picture of a sculpture that perfectly matched the story’s mood. I fell in love with the clean lines of the Muse and as soon as Alessandro told me who was the artist behind the sculpture I contacted her. Julie Swan, the talented Australian artist who created the stunning Muse and other equally breathtaking works, graciously gave us permission to use the image for Pax’s cover. Once again, I’m reminded of how generous artists can be. Life wouldn’t be so rich and worth living without the beauty only a piece of art can convey. Thank you, Julie.
