I'm not sure how to find out who is responsible for the cover art for several of my projects. The cover art is beautiful and perfectly fits the theme of the stories. Thank you so very very much!!

Watch and Wait, The Young Fugitives
Riverdale Stories
Rich and Humble, The Mission of Bertha Grant
In School and Out, The Conquest of Richard Grant
A Chautauqua Idyl

An eye-catching cover captures the attention to draw one into a delicious tale! Thank you all so much!

Scarlet,

One way is to look in the pdf CD cover insert in the corresponding librivox.org catalog page, or in the archive.org corresponding page, where it is listed the files ("download options") including the pdf. At the bottom of the pdf file itself, past the author,title, summary, tracks, running time, the image of the cover, there is the statement indicating that the cover is also public domain, and the creator of the cover.

Another way is to search in this thread the title of your project.

For example, the creator of the cover of the first one you mention in your list, by looking into https://librivox.org/watch-and-wait-the-young-fugitives-by-william-taylor-adams/
in the CD insert is : Annise :)

I think we all cover makers here try to do precisely that what you describe, to capture the attention of prospective listeners.

Regards and happy librivoxing,

Basquetteur

I'll try to remember - I'm uploading an M4B at the moment so can't delete the old cover till it's finished and derived.

Caught , and linked. The itemimage needs to be one word - it's a signal to Archive to make that their page image , otherwise they use a very fuzzy version of the pdf which looks yukky

Just checking to make sure I've claimed the cover for 60354, Hunting In Many Lands. I think I did. I marked it down as claimed, but now I am doubting my record system. Not even sure 60354 is the right number, which I derived from hovering my mouse over the title. Is that right?
