Hi,

Prompted by the earlier message about "something for the cover designers", and taking into account the framework of the already very helpful existing pages in order to design a cover in the LibriVox wiki, I have recently come accross a blog which contains critics and gives awards to professional cover designs of ebooks.

I find it interesting. As a cover designer here, I think I tend to make the same mistakes over and over.

Here is the link to the summary of the monthly awards entries, which covers about five years: http://www.thebookdesigner.com/2011/08/monthly-e-book-cover-design-awards/

There are fiction and non fiction awards. Of course the requirements in librivox are quite different and special, but nevertheless I find the awards curious.

May be other librivoxers know about other similar sites.

Cheers,

Basquetteur

Interesting - but there were not any that leaped out at me.
With ours I always find it hard to make them square. And to make them look OK at the 3 siizes - sometimes they look great as CD cover size and messy as thumb nails.
