You know what the front cover looks like (I’ve pasted it all over this blog often enough!) but what do you think about the first draft of the back cover?
I designed it last night. I like it a lot but am a bit worried that it doesn’t look anything like the front cover. So, do you like it but you find it a bit jarring because it shares no design elements with the front? Do you like it, either way? Or do you dislike it immensely?
Soon after I designed it I posted it to Flickr and then Twittered it. I got some immediate feedback.
Jamie Fellrath said: “I think the back cover looks terrific. Great attention-grabbing graphics and quotes make this a winner!”
Track_Stand said: “Maybe make Phil’s quote more visible. Switch it with Dr. Ian Walker’s, unless Ian has better name recognition than Phil.”
Tim ‘Masiguy’ Jackson said the cover was: “Freaking incredible!”
He also praised the artist, Kathleen King of California. Her brilliant work graces the inside of the book, too.
Now, what do you think of the cover? As always, I’m open to suggestions. I liked some of the early front covers too but intelligent and insightful comments from you lot made me see the error of my ways. I tweaked and tweaked the cover until it became the keeper, and I’m really pleased with it.
If you don’t mind helping me out again, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the back cover.
