Keywords: crystals; editorial.

In keeping with tradition, the cover illustration of the January 2011 issue of Acta Cryst. F is a montage of the best in crystal photomicrographs from crystallization communications published in 2010. Now in its fifth year, the tradition of the crystals cover acknowledges the contributions of crystallization communications to our journal's scientific content. It is a tradition we are pleased to honor once again.

The crystals featured this year are from the following articles: Tagami et al., 2010[Tagami, S., Sekine, S., Kumarevel, T., Yamamoto, M. & Yokoyama, S. (2010). Acta Cryst. F66, 64-68.]; Bandeiras et al., 2010[Bandeiras, T. M., Romão, C. V., Rodrigues, J. V., Teixeira, M. & Matias, P. M. (2010). Acta Cryst.

In anticipation of the 2012 cover, we would like to invite authors of crystallization communications to nominate their published photographs of crystals. If you would like to have a crystal picture we publish in 2011 considered as part of next year's January cover, please contact our Technical Editor, Louise Jones (lj@iucr.org) by e-mail with details.
