I haven’t forgotten the caption competition.
This is the last call for Flight OF FANCY 2B. Passengers to Caption Competition please board immediately at Gate 1.
Anybody not on the flight when it takes off will be left behind.
I need to recover from a marathon bit of book reformatting. Two hit me at the same time, one to bring a manuscript to book format, and another to reduce the Regina font a bit. The proof I proudly showed off earlier this month came out with an unnecessarily large number of pages.
Another re-cover thing: you remember this original SA cover for Regina compared with the USA proof?
Guess what: I am still trying to decide on the best cover design for the USA version of Regina. The suggestions given by readers were invaluable, and what really killed this proposed new cover was the comment by Nancy Hatch that I looked like a co-author in it!
So this below is the version I think I am going to adopt. More compact, and if the feature some liked of the cat sneaking up at you after first look isn’t quite as apparent – this cat is more ‘in your face’ with an almost hypnotic stare – it is fitting. He is no ordinary cat! (Hmmm… is there such a thing as one?) Anyway, he is more of a typical Siamese. The other one is actually a Tonkinese.
I like leaving the face clear, and the curved line of lettering enables this to be done without bringing the whole effect too low (one mustn’t forget the ‘bleed’ needed for trim, too). My ‘Magic Circle’ logo now only appears on the back.
What think you?
