Ok, these are the alternatives so far:
However, clean is also nice, cool and discrete for the travelling reader for example. One has to consider such situations. On the other hand, it's not very likely that this book will be available as papercopy, not for a while at least. In a digital version the purpose of the cover is to catch the unsuspecting readers eye to pick THIS book out from the millions available.
Ego took over. I had to try one option with this photo. Really like this one too, and it's eyecatching. I like how the text cuts up the face, like papercuts. I think it looks kind of "fresh". Maybe because the photo is 9 years old by now. If I use this I will move the name higher up and perhaps change the font to Arial.
So, which one of these do you like best?
