Mosaics by Ishmael von Heidrick-Barnes, who has contributed poetry to the new and previous editions of the annual.
- Created from individual photographs:
- the front cover image is part of the skyline of San Diego
- the large image on the back cover is an approaching view of the San Diego skyline
- the small image on the back cover replicates a tile pattern in the historic Santa Fe Depot, downtown San Diego
The same images and format are used for the cover of the bilingual volume, Marca Frontera / Border Mark.
