A note from cover artist Rashin Kheiriyeh

The atmosphere of Meghan Nuttall Sayres’ novels, Night Letter and Anahita’s Woven Riddle, are full of Persian tradition, so in designing the cover art I decided to paint in the Persian miniature style—one of the most enduring styles of Persian art—using colorful characters and oriental patterns. The most important elements of Persian miniatures are the dominance of light and the use of pure color. They are vibrant, like the stories themselves, like a Persian carpet full of adventure and mystery. I worked with handmade paper, pencil, and acrylic.
