CPR Volume 12 cover, "Robin" by Landon Godfrey

Author Landon Godfrey’s manuscript, Second-Skin Rhinestone-Spangled Nude Soufflé Chiffon Gown, won the 2009 CPR Book Award, but fantastic writing is not her only talent.  Godfrey is also an accomplished painter.  The editors were delighted when she agree to let us use one of her paintings for the cover of Cider Press Review, Volume 12.

Landon remarks:” The robin drawing started out as an extension of my appreciation for birds, an appreciation that grew in the couple of years I spent in Oklahoma. It’s a bit on the barren side where I was living, and the birds, especially the bright red birds—the robins and the cardinals—gave me a sense of vibrancy in a sometimes dun landscape. And often they were passing through on their way to somewhere else, as was I. “
