Our Spring 2015 cover is the second in a series of covers that meld science and art. This issue we turned to the colourful work of Henri Matisse, a French artist known for simple yet stunning paper cutout collages. Our own cutouts represent key host and pathogen organisms in immunology: Human/mosquito, bacteria/phage, plant/fungi, and the voracious tapeworm. Several of these surround the human form on the bottom left, to remind us that while we may study very specific organisms or pathways, it is always good practice to step back and think of the big picture, illuminated by sub specie evolutionis—the light of evolution.
