The cover image is of Aglio 6 Olio, or The Garlic Book – an abstract cook-book whose structure emulates that of a symmetrical head of garlic. The six cloves, each a section of the whole book, each present a recipe for one of the classic sauces of garlic and oil, plus one, or at the most two, other ingredients.

Coracle has, through her art and books, reinvented the very idea of line, and place,
thus defying lineage and placement. Coracle is that rare vessel that travels lightly,
even with substantial gear, and knows how to navigate between waves.

Quote on the back cover from Roger L. Conover, Executive Editor, MIT Press.
