Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Beth, that is so gorgeous! Wow!

What I love is the blur on the right, whether it is a bird or not I cannot decide, but it adds movement and mystery to the whole. Congratulations on this and thank you for sharing a glimpse of the process, too.

Thanks so much, Andrea!

Vivian, I love that blur too. It looks to me like a watery spot on the edge of the woods. An accident, but sometimes that's the best part.

Beth, I totally love the cover and it's great to see more of your work and learn something about the process here. What a lovely, lovely thing. Beautiful poetry leading to beautiful art is just... well, what could be better, more inspiring?
