I’ve been working most of the night (since getting back from the Art Walk; I may post about THAT later) on the layout & cover design for the print edition of the Lost and Not Found – Director’s Cut. Looks like it’s going to be 114 pages, and be priced at $9.99. Here’s the cover design. Click for to see it bigger (ie: so you can read the text).
As I mentioned before, the front cover is based on the painting ‘love takes flight’ which I designed and painted specifically for it. Not thinking clearly (apparently) I didn’t paint something suitable for a wraparound cover (like I did for More Lost Memories & Cheating, Death – and photographically for my other books), so night before last I painted a new 8×10″ blue sky painting for the back cover. Last night (I’m still up, I keep wanting to say “tonight” even though it’s after 7AM) I scanned that painting, adjusted its colors to match the other painting better, and then worked for hours to get everything just so.
If you’d like to leave a comment, I’m asking two things: 1) What do you think of this cover design & especially of the words on the back? 2) What should I paint on the 8×10″ blue sky canvas? (ie: it served its purpose of being blank for the book, now what?)
