The cover for "The Book of the Dead" can be found here: https://librivox.org/uploads/covers/Salvationist.zip

It may be worth switching Budge from author to translator, as he didn't actually write this ancient Egyptian text.

As a rule of thumb , I use the author as given in the text we use. And in this case he did write much of it . But it is a moot point. Anne

Hi

It looks as if my original request (13/08) has been missed.

I would like to pre-claim the cover for my current solo: Project 13203 - Stories of the Royal Humane Society

Thanks

Hi,

I would like to make a cover for Seven Statesmen of the Later Republic by Charles Oman (1860 - 1946).

Sorry I claimed it before posting here. I'll remember it in the future.

Thanks,

Amit

No that's fine
How it works is
There is a claims list kept on Bart's server which his friend made for us so that 2 people didn't make the same cover and the projects turn up in it after they are catalogued. It can take a few hours . If the cover is not claimed just enter your name - no need to post in the thread.

The posts you see are "preclaims" - soloists/BCs who want to make a cover for ther project can ask for it to be preclaimed and it will come on the claims list after cataloguing with their name already enteres
Looking forwardr to your first cover :D
