alchemy man b:wThe design for the book cover is a creative embellishment of an old German woodcut design that depicts the wonder of a man or woman peeking out of their familiar world into a vast universe. Called “The Spiritual Pilgrim,” it is associated with alchemy. This black and white and also the color version are familiar to many people.
