The Age of Perpetual Light is a series of stories that speak to the theme of humankind's eternal effort to diminish the darkness around us. The book begins in the early days of electrification and travels to a near future, lit by satellites that reflect the sunlight on the darkest parts of the world. 

From Josh Weil, the author, “...thank you—so much—for doing such a beautiful job with the cover for my book, The Age of Perpetual Light. I love it. And I’m deeply impressed by not only the design elements, but the artistry in it."
