The word "palimpsest" comes through Latin palimpsēstus from Ancient Greek παλίμψηστος (palímpsestos, “scratched or scraped again”) originally compounded from πάλιν (palin, “again”) and ψάω (psao, “I scrape”) literally meaning “scraped clean and used again”. Romans wrote on wax-coated tablets that could be smoothed and reused, and a passing use of the term "palimpsest" by Cicero seems to refer to this practice.Pulled an all-nighter last night, mostly working on the final stages of the cover for Party At The World's End, as well as a few title images based off the palimpsest notebooks that will be included in black and white in the final edition.
This cover isn't completely done, but you can see the progress. I need to even out / balance some of the levels. (Click for full-size)
