Easy, Ann. Easy, now, Ma'am. It's all good. Peace. I wasn’t pointing fingers at anybody. :)

For the record, I do appreciate all the work that goes into pulling a book together and making sure it's legal.

Friends?

:thumbs: It's just it sometimes seems that people act like admins get their kicks knocking back projects.

Availle - very creative cover on Voltaire's Letters on England! That gets away from the standard "I don't know what to do, so I'll just use the author's portrait" cover. ;)

Short essays: Elia, and The Last Essays of Elia

Thank you Tricia, although, strictly speaking, it's still the author's portrait (on which I did some reversal magic...) :lol:

That was one of those few covers where
a) I had a flash of inspiration upon seeing the title and
b) it actually worked out.

There are so many covers where I had to do something completely different than I had wanted because I couldn't find a pd image, the images I found didn't work out, or I just couldn't pull it off...
Cheers, Ava.

You're welcome! It was fun trying to find a social picture NOT set in the 1700s (tri-cornered hats and periwigs)!

It's always fun to have another place to chat, and interesting to find out how others do things.
