According to the album's press release, "the title 'VIII: Selenotrope' refers to plants that flower in moonlight" which is partly what the cover illustration portrays. That artwork created by Benjamin König of Sperber Illustrationen. "Benjamin König is no stranger to album covers, particularly for Prophecy Productions' releases, for whom he's done several very notable ones," comments Botanist's main man, Otrebor. "He's a consummate professional that delivered the exact demands, even exceeding what we thought would be a strict deadline."
