      As presented by Toshimitsu Ichimori, Kenta Mizuma, Tetsuya Uchida, Shinichi Yamazaki, and Kunio Kimura on page 1282. the cover picture shows a scanning electron micrograph of a poly(p-oxybenzoyl) nanofiber network prepared by reaction-induced phase separation during the polymerization of 4-acetoxybenzoic acid with 3,5-diacetoxybenzoic acid in aromatic solvent. The network is composed of fibers connected to each other at spherical nodal points and the polymer molecules are aligned along the long direction of the fibers. This morphology resembles a texture of non-woven fabrics, suggesting a new method to prepare non-woven fabrics of intractable high-performance polymers without spinning.

      As presented by Gabriel Furtos and colleagues on page 1266, the cover shows a scanning electron microscopy image of a fractured sample of resin cement reinforced with 20% short alkaline-resistant glass fibers after a diametral tensile strength test. In the image, the fibers are orientated in various directions. The fractured surface of the composite shows the fibers remaining after material fracturing; small patches of polymer composite adhered to the glass fiber surface after pulling out may also be observed. The fractured surface of the fiber composite is intact, without cracks in the polymer matrix.
