I'm a big art nouveau fan which readily explains why I was so attracted to Bob Schulenberg's wonderful Alphonse Muncha inspired cover illustration.  Actually, I'm guessing Schulenberg was inspired by the famous Czech-born poster artist.   


As for Schulenberg's connection with the band; the only thing I've been able to track down is a brief  October 2009 entry on a Tranquility-related website from Schulenberg himself: "I painted the album cover; it's nice to see this group appreciated after so many years!"
