I settled on the image of Safia holding hands with her grandmother as the cover page for the prologue to A Palestinian Tale. Something about the image struck me as appropriate, beyond the other contenders such as a schematic of the world of ‘Ard, or a sunrise. Safia and the reader are learning about the foundations of the world, the setting of A Palestinian Tale. It’s intimate and earthy rather than grand and spatial. There is the slight glow of magic about the gesture too, since there is the transference of a story taking place.
I hope to complete cover pages for all of the chapters of A Palestinian Tale.
