Mnevermind paperback art

Here are a couple of shots from the half-title and title page of the paperback. I'm not sure I'm going to go with the crows/capitol short because I can't bleed it off the page, a fade-out would look weird, and it's not that satisfying sitting in the center of the page either. But I'll order a proof and see if I can live with it that way.

Persistence of Memory half-title

Title art

Hm...seeing it here I just got an idea of how I might like it better on a page. Yay.

ETA: here is my new solution for the title page, since I can't do a bleed. I'm really happy with it!

The crows really catch your eye.

I'm so glad! It's a dreamy kind of ominous, strange story.

Love them both! The crows give it an ominous feel. (And yay to paperback!)

I've started producing the paperback concurrently so I can catch more mistakes. Gotta order that paperback today!

No probs.
Anytime you're stuck, call on me.

It's so what I would have done.

Of course, every time I see crows, I think of the Gothic Archies song:

Nice! That just went in my Mnevermind playlist. (Goody, a new band to get to know.)

Oh! I am honored to have my song idea added! :D

The lead singer of the Gothic Archies is Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields. :)

LOVE the last pic, especially the crows flying from the words---spectacular!

Thank you, there is a lot of reality testing in the book. I think the image and text will work well together!

Looks great! Love the feel of it, like the calm before a storm, the feather at the bottom is perfect :-)

Thanks, Aniko, it's a moody and understated piece. I think this conveys it. I was really happy to hit on that feather idea...was not liking the chunk o' black on the page.
