      Thanks to all designers,
      i can't lose
      the top 10 in my mind are excellent for my book
      i like the flow from front to back
      i don't consider the spine as a separate area(perhaps i should)
      shapes and colors
      flood my eye
      and twinkle
      in my mind
      will

      Antezg, #78
      I would like The flower on the back cover
      to start where the highest flower is on the front
      the poem would spread out and end where it does now.
      thanks
      will

      when i print out #80 in color
      the background looks faded
      the white leafy-like structures need some color
      and can you spread out the poem on the back cover so its starts
      higher?
      about the height of To My Lady on the front
      thanks
      will

      I have uploaded the photo and barcode.
      I'm looking now at the back covers.
      photo
      poem
      3 quotes
      ISBN and barcode
      Will only consider front covers with bold print
      #49 has added the bio and it works on this one

      I'll come back and focus on back covers and provide feedback
      My approach is what can I say to make each one the winner even though there's only one book cover and winner
      thanks

      We've extended for 4 days
      I just attached my photo
      Now to get the barcode issue solved.
      I'll work on tat all day until resolved

      In all entries, i need to be sure that the font is bold and large enough to be clearly seen. The ones I have chosen so far, will stand out among other books.
      The comments that voters gave you is valid.
      The color blend in #61 is appealing, yet I don't know why I'm not selecting it. The font and positioning is perfect.

      I'm considering #s 55, 54 49, 39 13, 17
      55 clean
      54 giving something To My Lady
      49 the face is catching
      39 simple, stark, all telling
      17 simple, colorful, flowing
      13 the face again, fonts can be bolder to stand out more
      glad i have more time to consider the winner

      # 54, 58, and 39 stand out for an air of simplicity, though i haven't made a final decision.
      #49 and 31 provide faces to MY Lady and i haven't decided beetween the two yet.
