pics from the book, L. J. (Lewis Jesse) Bridgman, 1857-1931

cheers,

may i ask if i did something wrong with the swanhilde cover?
is the lifespan of bridgman incorrect?
the book was published including these pics in 1889?
or is the cover otherwise not ok?

As I recently made a cover for the Rime of Dante and will make the covers for the books I BC, I made templates in Scribus for

- an origami CD sleeve
- a jewel case inlay.

Sorry, no booklet :)

There is a layer for the background and one for the text, the text suggestions from the OpenOffice-Templates are included, logo is not, as this depends on the design.

Thought I wanted to share them in case someone else likes to work with the program :)

I hope it has some advantages over Office. Easier text placement, also more freely, exact measures, layering...

Achieve the same in Writer would probably have been more work ;)

Old cover has a misspelling.

On the Antiseptic Principle of the Practice of Surgery

Cover has "On the Antiseptic Principal..."

Cover designer has been left off the file. (It has "Cover design by {your name}.")

Looks like the cover was uploaded 2011/04.

Anne tracks this thread too. I didn't want to confuse the flow of new covers with the flow of "fixing errors we find". By the way, I love fixing things, and there is so much opportunity for error wherever keyboards are involved. :shock:

Hello!

I would like to thank the designer for The Burglar and the Blizzard's cover art. It's so beautifully done. I hope that I can send a thank-you note.

Thanks!
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D
