Cover Redesign: 'Chance or Circumstance?' by James R. Mapp
Design Note 1: The compass is important to the story’s plot and theme, so adding it front and center helps pull everything together.
Design Note 2: Since the subtitle is very important to selling the book, I made it much larger in the redesign.
Design Note 3: The author’s family wanted to include images from the author’s past. They weren’t high-quality, so making them look like a pile of old photographs solves the problem with an artistic flair.
Design Note 4: Using red bolded lettering helps this cover stand out in a thumbnail and makes the viewer look twice.
