Pictures are from the book: https://hdl.handle.net/2027/osu.32435050753144

Also, curious what DPI/Pixels per Inch is generally used for best results.
Thank you.

My latest solo project "Tales of a Traveler" was just catalogued and is ready for artwork. I don't think I have ever asked for any specific cover for my projects but this one is very important to me. I would love to see something that shows New York in the late 1700's or early 1800's. If not possible, something showing the English countryside from that same time frame would be nice.

I would also request, perhaps in the liner notes, a dedication to my wife, Nancy Giordano, who battled cancer during the time I worked on this project. "To Nancy, whose determination and faith brought her through our darkest hour."

Thank you to whomever claims this project.

Greg, that is the sweetest thing I've ever heard! If I didn't have two cover claims already, I would jump at the chance to design your cover.

I hope your wife is recovering from her ordeal and wish you both the best.

Michelle,

Thank you for your kind words. This project, in many ways, mirrored our mutual journey through her sickness.

I'm sorry you can't do the cover, but appreciate your interest.

Take care,

Greg

Hi Greg! You may include a dedication within your project's summary if you'd like, then it can also appear in the CD back-cover, if the cover artist uses the project's description.

I am glad your wife is doing better!

That is wonderful news. Thank you! I will share with the cover artist.

caught... and linked. You must have had fun making that, it turned out well :D

I think that photos taken by USA civil servants are PD if it's part of their job , I don't think if they go on holidays to the Bahamas and snap the scenery it would be
