The cover depicts the microstructure of sea urchin spines (blue and green circle) and biomimetic alumina (violet circle). Computer tomography shows the macroscopic similarity between graded hierarchic porous alumina obtained via slip casting (red) and a pencil sea urchin spine (brown). (Cover art by V. Presser and K. Jost). Further details can be found in the article by Presser et al. on page 1042.
