Regarding the edit comment that "the technical details are far more clutter than a rainbow and a cathedral and a symbolic cross for a quote of John of the Cross...," my own copy of The Poems of St. John of the Cross (tr. Willis Barnstone, New Directions, 1972) is illustrated with a single engraved portrait on the cover. The book does not seem deficient for lack of more graphic elements; rather, as is customary for printed verse, it uses a considerable amount of whitespace throughout.

A cross is a fine choice. A rainbow over a cathedral is a charming allegory. Crowding the quote with images on all sides is, I think, too much of a good thing. ~ Ningauble 20:29, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
