NOTES ON VISUAL ART: Most banner images throughout this issue are details from Scott Neely's Tears (Holy Week 2012), a series of watercolors on paper that you can view here.  The exceptions are the pages for the editor's letter, which features a banner of images from Pamela Chatterton Purdy's Icons of the Civil Rights Movement, and the pages for the visual art of Pamela Chatterton-Purdy, Bethany Collins, Noble Beast, and Scott Neely (Morning Hymns), in which cases the banner art comes from those respective pages. The artwork on the cover and in the background on this page is "Wildwood 2" by Noble Beast, from his series of collages in this issue.
