The light at the end of this tunnel shines on everything in the studio and has kindled some interesting thoughts.
The zeitgeist of the publishing threads that have floated by my screen recently has been about cover art. At the most recent writer's group meeting, there was some talk of the experience of holding an actual book as opposed to some e-mode.
To me, it's like the difference between champagne and distilled water. It's all about how many senses are engaged while the story takes over your life.
While I was looking for something else, I found a folder with some of the reprographs I made a few years back. I've been cutting them up into postcard sized pieces and using them as bookmarks. They are just the right weight and size and the backside plain paper is perfect for taking notes.
Fortunately, I leafed through the folder before I cut this one up. It's the last and the original was sold. This print is all I have left.
After looking at dozens of "BEST BOOK COVERS" according to I don't know who, it occurred to me that I have all the cover material I could ever look for right at my fingertips and should I not find something suitable, I can thread a needle and make that happen too.
