Section One Cover – When Library's purchase from other realities...
I decided at the last moment before POD 39 to bang together a cover. However, I hadn't actually thought
about what to do...
...but I had
done all these "book ends" for our Halloween decorations here at the library back in 2002. For that, they had just been printed off flat, then "pasted" to the ends of real books to give them new titles.
For this, I had to make the images look more "3D" (shading, light reflections, scratches and fold lines - most of which, unfortunately, doesn't show up at this resolution) then arranged them on a Photopainted bookshelf. Then I added a few details & the titles and, tada!, instant cover.
For those who can't read them (which I suspect is most of you...), the books are (from left to right):
