Workin' on the Railroad
Here's my latest attempt at a wraparound cover for The Riddle of Billy Gibbs, coming in January. The first try consisted of the present front cover, plus yellow text on a flopped image of the cover photograph for the back cover.
Too many people said the back cover was hard to read. I had to agree.
So I threw out that flopped image and used a plain light blue background instead for the back cover and spine, with black text. I've tried hard to match the blue with one of the shades on the front cover, but I'm just not skilled enough with Photoshop Elements. I think the current blue is good enough for government work.
What say ye?
