Trying to Coax Spring

Here’s a sneak preview of the cover of the new issue of The Penn Stater. It goes with a feature-length profile inside on George Griffith ’56, who has been cultivating water lilies since he was an undergraduate at Penn State more than 50 years ago. We hired Pittsburgh-area photographer Scott Goldsmith to shoot Griffith and his lilies late last summer, and the photos that came back were just stunning.

Our art director, Carole Otypka, worked on this story in December, when the Pennsylvania winter was already getting pretty old. She felt it would be the perfect cover story for a spring issue, and she chose this image for the cover.

    I hope the delivery of The Penn Stater is a sure sign of warm weather. My tolerance for gray days is waning and I look every morning for a crocus in the yard.
