So I tried to make a nice cover for my solo, but it just wasn't happening. Would someone else please do it?
https://librivox.org/grandpas-darlings-by-pansy/

I'd like to use this picture, if possible: https://librivox.org/uploads/covers/grandpasdarlings.zip
taken from here: https://archive.org/details/littleminnieothe00pans/page/284/mode/2up

Or I suppose any nice picture of one or two little girls of age 6 or younger.
i claimed it - and i will try to use it.

but i was wondering: the picture on the first page is very nice, also!

Yes, it is - it doesn't fit any of the scenes in THIS book, though, which is why I like the other better.

If you can't get my favorite picture to work, feel free to use the other one. ;) Thanks!

@anne
since my real name is typically german and rather difficult to pronounce - and pronounced differently in different languages - i always thought it to be funny, to call me in another typically mispronounced nickname.
but as i read your comment, i was feeling bad: like having met long ago, but i never introduced myself :oops:
i'm sorry for this!
cheers,
a cats purr
:D

@everyone:
absolutely stunning covers, the last days and weeks!
some graphically interesting, many with really hours of work (or so i feel), some just really good looking and pleasing covers!
i looked up most of them (or every single one) and i have to say: i could never guess, who the covermaker is.
it's just cool!

Doesn't really matter about the name - I just find it easier to type words I can say and my name is spelled wrongly too. I needed one for another site and my grown-up children decided to find one for me and after much hilarity started deciding spice girl would be nice and after much hilarity about nut meg etc from them I suggested "star anise" which turned into anise but after years of writing my name ann... writing ani..was too hard so it turned into annise :D . So I'm not a spice, just an anagram of "is anne"

They have been a great collection of covers recently I feel - a good variety of design and colour and yet relevant :clap: :clap: :clap:
