Judging Science by Its Cover

I love this cover. It's an obvious one for a writer, but I equally love their covers of wild colors and amorphous shapes (or blatantly systematic patterns). Check  out  these  ones.

Science's art/marketing department must be a group of genuises (the Peter Principle working in reverse here). Their covers would make anyone open the magazine to find out what the hell the picture actually is.

This week's offering is straightforward. Still, I had to turn to the contents page for the scoop. The image is for an article about the Sisyphean task that is digitally archiving books.
