This is the cover of the book I’ve been writing over the past year and a half. It’s available on Amazon  and it’s in a format that allows you to read a few pages for free.
The reason I titled this post ‘How to illustrate a physics textbook’ is that, for quite a while, that was the working title of the book. It ended up being the title of Appendix IV, which includes nine (sometimes serious) ways to illustrate a physics textbook, using 30 examples from The Fine Art of Physics.  
The cover illustration ‘Multi-disciplinary Bridges’ is an example of an allegorical representation.
