Here’s a completely different approach to the book cover:
At first glance, it may not be entirely obvious how this image relates to the book’s theme. Well, at first glance the image looks like Mars, but it’s really just two kids playing in the desert, so it communicates the idea of not taking things at face value. The kids have their faces tilted up, looking “beyond.” There’s also significance to the fact that they’re wearing spacesuits, in the sense that the body is like a genetic spacesuit for consciousness. More importantly, childhood and playtime are integral to the book’s final chapter and conclusion.
Any opinions on this one in comparison to the other attempts?
