I’m working on cover art for my next historical series, the first two books of which should be out in the first half of 2013. I’d already approved the cover for the second book in the series (Unashamed), but when I got the comp for the the cover of the first book (Unbridled), it was apparent that the font that looked great on the first book’s was fussy and hard to read on the second. This meant going back to the drawing board for the title font for both books.
I think I know which font I prefer, but I’m looking for opinions from my minions (oh, how I wish I had minions, lol). I’m showing you both sets of covers with the same font side-by-side in two sizes, 200×300 (which is pretty common for the main book pages on the major retailer sites) and then in thumbnail (which is what you see on search pages, bestseller lists, and in the also boughts). Let me know what you think. I’d be ever so grateful!
So, what do you think? Set 1, 2, or 3? Comment or, if you got to this from Twitter and prefer to answer there, @ reply me with your vote! (I’d do a poll, but I’d have to reinstall the plugin, and that’s just too much work!)
P.S. Ignore the telephone poles in the background on Unbridled if you’re eagle-eyed enough to see them. I’m sure my artist can get rid of them!
