5.0 out of 5 stars A Different View October 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great essay that got me thinking about covers in general and mine in particular. How they work, what they do, and how they can do it better. I should be writing though, not thinking about covers, imagining covers, arranging them in my mind.

Not only for writers and designers though, it's just interesting stuff. Definitely worth looking at.
