Book II - Front Cover

view profile

Josh_Wolf says:

Hey all,

Jake came up with the idea to replace the film type names on the camera for the cover with IB related words/phrases.

I've made a quick mock up to see what the rest of you think (I'll do some tidying up of the lettering to make it blend better for the final):

Here it is, the final version. I can still make changes if anybody has any strong feelings, so long as it's not too late (I'll let Jake or Jordy decide how late is too late).

Bexy's rejection not-withstanding, I'm gonna take that as a yes and go give it a little polish ready to send to Jake/Jordy

Thanks for the feedback! (I'll keep an eye out just in case anybody else chimes in, not on flickr much these days apart from to check the book threads)

OK, edited the OP with the polished version, lettering is just a bit more subtle now and my slight OCD meant I had to line up the dial properly (as per the original)

that's all nice but are we not calling it just ICEBOX II? I thought we agreed that putting BOOK in the title of a book is redundant at best.

Also, every time I look at this image (pre of post alteration) I get a feel that it's just ever so slightly rotated in the clockwise direction. Anyone else?

Well, that makes it official then!

We never agreed, 'twas too hard. Made the best decision we could given the various constraints.
