An elegant red haired beauty looks out to us dreamily in a stylized white dress, which contrasts sharply with the soft pastel background. She seems unaware of the two little green, fairy like, men from Mars that hover behind her, like transparent moths wrapped in flowing green silks. Through their wings we make out the planet Saturn and a large glowing orange globe, that could be the red planet itself, or perhaps the capsule like spacecraft that has delivered them to us. They appear to be contemplating a serious matter. One Martian's worried expression and the other's pointing hand leads us to wonder if the unassuming lady in the foreground is about to leave us for other worldly adventures ...Our interests heightened, Hyland has created a captivating design for Harper's Magazine, that practically dares us not to rush out and buy the magazine to read the new serial "The Martian".
