This was done for a class project, at the time BusinessWeek was not called Bloomberg Business Week, that happened in April, where which the covers began looking a whole lot more artistic, maybe this helped :) (I notice now that I didn’t sufficiently quick select, magic lasso away the off white colour around the smoke, it was after all a school project.  It won’t happen again…:)

The word “symbol” came to the English language by way of Middle English, from Old French, from Latin, from the Greek σύμβολον (sýmbolon) from the root words συν- (syn-) meaning “together” and βολή (bolē) “a throw”, having the approximate meaning of “to throw together”, literally a “co-incidence” (zu-fall), also “sign, ticket, or contract”. The earliest attestation of the term is in the Homeric Hymn to Hermes where Hermes on seeing the tortoise exclaims συμβολον ηδη μοιsymbolon [symbol/sign/portent/encounter/chance find?] of joy to me!” before turning it into a lyre.
