Cover Art:
Oakland-based artist Luz Marina Ruiz works in a variety of media: drawing, printmaking, painting, mixed media, and most recently in book arts. According to Ruiz , the images in her work are derived from nature and from the world of dreams, especially the recurring childhood dreams of flight—the birds represent freedom, movement and spontaneity.
