Cover Art Description

A light-orange curtain with ruffles frames the rest of the image. The curtain is tied to the sides, its right side off-image. Through its opening, the figure of a blonde can be seen, sitting on the ground outside the window. She sits at a three-quarter angle to the right, facing left of and away from the reader. She sits with her back upright and her left hand holding her raised, left knee. Her right leg is slightly bent in front of her, and she is fully naked except for a translucent garment with a pattern that sits on her lap. Her hair is tied in a pony tail and bangs run across her forehead. An earring can be seen on her left ear. Behind her figure, foliage can be seen. The image is lit in natural sunlight from the top left.
