On the cover of this special issue is Lovett Hall, the first building erected on the campus of Rice University in Houston, which celebrates the centenary of its founding in 1912. The owl is the university's mascot, chosen as the symbol of wisdom. The hexagonal pattern represents the lattice structure of the graphitic carbon honeycomb, the building block of many carbon nanostructures, including the fullerene (owl eyes), carbon nanotube (bar on which the owl perches) and graphene (owl body).
