The covers need PD images because they're released into the PD also, so the image will be released and can propagate online without any controls. Is he aware of this?

I’ll double check with him.

Here’s hiss response:
“I guess that's OK.
Is it correct that it will not be a high enough resolution to be reproduced?
Will there be a credit ?”

Can you put the name “” URL under the portrait??

If what is used is the image on the website, it's only at that resolution, so it could probably be reproduced online, but you couldn't make a gallery-style print out of it. :)

Well...if they refuse....I guess they'll use the Wiki portrait which is pretty good, too!

Passing this on to whomever ends up with that cover.

I can't see any reason for deviating from our policy about cover images being PD and I'm not in favour of us advertising any website except LV underneath the portrait except LV so I'd reject it. (putting a source on the back is quite different)
From an artistic point of view, I don't see why we would necessarily use a portrait, for example a ww1 cartoon of soldiers dying in the fields and war profiteers smoking cigars is probably out there somewhere if one knew where to look :D

Yeah, I didn't have my head on straight. Never mind. I'll delete the links in the post above.

On another subject: have you been talking to Bart? Any idea why the server is down?

Does this help as a temporary stopgap?

I've set it so anyone can edit it.

I don't know if anyone had preclaims on any of the covers; I guessed about the climatic change one. I remember Salvationist had Jurisprudence.

Are you trying to piece together who has what cover claims? Is that why you said Michele has 2?
If you need this info, they are:

Prince Henry The Navigator
Manners for Men

I am also preclaiming the cover for Love's Language, 13903

I had claimed Jurisprudence and The Castle Builder, both about a week ago. I'm almost done with Jurisprudence.

Bart's server is back! I've transferred any new data from the temporary Google sheet claims list to Bart's libriclaims page.

Hey guys! I am very new to cover making and had a question. I know that for group projects it is good to have a list of who read what sections. However the project I am working on has 108 sections. I don't know how to best fit these on. Any suggestions?
