Cover design features a processed aerial image of Israel, the West Bank, and part of Jordan, made by Barry Wilmore from the International Space Station, NASA (2014). The display type is the calligraphic RS Escritura (also used for headings), of typical Renaissance atmosphere; the asymmetrical shapes of the undulating serifs cause the characters to have a large aperture — subtle connections to the land as visualized, and to the erudition presented in the texts at large.
