The set-up for the book's cover image: “This is a hill near my parents’ house in rural Connecticut. It’s on the University of Connecticut’s agriculture campus, so there are cows all around. It’s this magical spot that feels like it could be in the farmlands of Idaho. I’ve always made pictures there; I have an example of my mom with a picnic blanket that I took maybe eight years ago. That picture stuck in my mind, and it was pleasant to recreate it. She was my assistant that day. She flew the blanket and I flew Henry.”
