Fwd: Covers

That’s interesting – I keep bumping into uses of AI these days!
I quite like this cover. But let me run it past Ms Kennedy tomorrow … The image works well – and I like the subtle frame around it The only change I’d make is to take out the word “issue” in top right flash and add the “8th edition” instead (keeping the orange). Would that unbalance the cover?? And maybe the title a bit bigger – bigger than my name! Talk more tmw when I have the jury’s vote.
And while you’re playing with AI, can you try a cover for Word Time! Please? It’ll be interesting to see what AI generates for that – and it’s the same narrower size Also by Elizabeth Tierney, it’s a companion to Show Time! Subtitle is “A Guide to Effective Business Writing’
Thanks Brian
trust all’s well with you and yours. I don’t seem to have done the Starting a Business in Ireland cover so I’ll be starting from scratch. I’ve been doing some exploratory stuff with AI in an effort to be down with the kids so I thought it would be interesting to see how an AI image could work on the cover – a way of demonstrating the continued relevance of the book even in these times. If it doesn’t work for you that’s no problem but wanted to run it by you nonetheless
All the best,
