Iodine Poetry Journal Editor and Publisher Jonathan K. Rice is also Poet and Visual Artist as well, and has been designing cover art for his iconic publication for the past 15 years. More of his work can be found here on the back list page for Iodine.
“Crow and Cloud,” photograph by Carolyn Guinzio, on the front cover of Cimarron Review Winter 2015 is a similar image to what I witness on my walks each morning – the birds coming back after a long winter, filling the tops of trees with their songs, the leaves yet to fill in the sky.
And another for the birds, Beloit Poetry Journal Spring 2015 features a lovely, dark, lush oil on linen by Eleanor Spiess-Ferris, “Shoreline” (2006). The cover does not reveal the entire image, so it’s worth a visit to the BPJ website to see what you’re not seeing in this pile of birds.
