This is still in draft form — I expect there to be a few more changes. The colon will go certainly. It’s fascinating to see an artist’s representation of your work. In publishing, typically, the writer doesn’t have the last word (and sometimes not the first) regarding the cover. It’s considered to be a marketing issue. I was very trepidatious as I waited to see what concept the graphic designer had. I am not a particularly visual thinker (that doesn’t mean though that I don’t think kinetically — my action sequences are informed by a kind of moving picture imagination). I didn’t have much of a notion as to how the cover should look. That said, I know what I like. And I like this. I’m especially fond of the treatment on the title font.
What do you think?
