How to do a cover for an anthology of fiction for young adults? Outright I had already decided to depict a boy and a girl. The problem, though, was how. Will they be interacting? Will they be oblivious of each other? The scrapbook idea is something I've long been wanting to do, and I finally found a use for it as a cover for a UP Press book. I like how it gives a feeling of something voyeuristic about it; like you chanced upon somebody's open journal. I'm also very pleased with how the ring binding turned out, how it coincides with the spine to make it look unique when on the shelf. But it would have been nicer though if the book were thicker so it would not be covered up by all the info on the spine. Oh well.
