Who did the cover art?

That’s what the Mises Institute needs to sell its wares: Fantastic cover art. Like this.

Oi vey, horrible cover art. My apologies to the illustrator, but that cover conveys nothing of the rich material found inside the pages. Is the market for this book being directed at Dungeons and Dragons fans looking for a new comic book to buy?

There’s a typo in the linked page:

“But how can be convincing”

The cover art is great. It does convey the book’s contents; that image is an instance of the market. It could also be interpreted as showing Power, as the bookeeper is having something pointed out to him by the other man (Power), who is shown to be in a position of dominance (his right arm is draped over the bookeeper’s left arm). This conveys direction and interference.

The cover is from The Money Lenders” by Quetin Massys or Metsys (1466-1530)
