The cover depicts ‘The Kiss’ (French: ‘Le Baiser’) an 1882 marble sculpture by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) located in the Musée Rodin, Paris. The Kiss originally represented Paolo and Francesca, two characters borrowed from Dante’s Divine Comedy: slain by Francesca’s husband who surprised them as they exchanged their first kiss, the two lovers were condemned to wander eternally through Hell.
