two possible covers for our book

    Newer Older

    Hey folks! We'd love your help. These are two potential book covers for our next book, Gluten-Free Girl Every Day (it comes out in April).

    Can you vote on which one you prefer? I have a definite choice, but we'd like to know what you think!

      I do lurve your work but neither one of these look fantastic.
      They both have a very so so look. The salmon one looks like day old road kill and the waffles look very very uninspiring.
      I raed your blog and I know your work and I know that you are fantastic and neither one of these covers have the feel of your work.

      I would like the waffles more if they weren't covered with salmon & capers. I prefer that image until I notice that level of detail, and then I'm turned off because I'm not sure I would like that (despite loving waffles, salmon, and capers quite a lot).

      The waffles speak to the possibilities of "regular" food prepared gf, but that salmon looks luscious!

      Shauna - the salmon picture is great because I like the concept of dividing a dish into two but the waffles drew me in first because they are bright, yummy-looking and the title was clear and bold (not see-through) for us oldies.

      Waffles, no question.

      My first impression was the waffles.

      The gorgeous salmon makes me want to pick up the book!

      Waffles too. Gluten-free salmon is the usual way to serve it. But if it were salmon pie, or some Chinese GF dumpling soup, or chicken served with GF bechamel, now that would speak for itself. Also, I like that the waffles have smoked salmon on top and not a pile of sweet jam. Different, original.

      The salmon dish on the left. The image is complete and satisfying. The split image on the right, although interesting, doesn't offer the same roundness, softness and gift-like offering the photo on the left does. Strong preference for image on left.

      Go waffles. They draw you in.

      waffles, hands down! i also like how the title band is not right in the middle like the salmon. the asymmetry is more pleasing to the eye. good luck!

      The waffles cover is so much better!
      1. gluten-free waffles?!?! YES!
      2. The dark colors of the title words pop on the white background (as do those delicious looking waffles). The title of the book blends in on the Salmon, so it is harder to read.
      3. First glance at both of these and my eye was immediately drawn to the stark contrast of the dark waffles on the light background as opposed to the light salmon on the light background (which all tends to run together).
      4. Many restaurants will put their food on contrasting colored plates to make it look better or more desirable. Hence why the "dark on light" waffles look more appetizing than the "light on light" salmon does. Of course, that is without the bias of which food you like better!
      Just think about how these two covers look on a shelf and which one immediately catches your eye!

      I find the salmon more visually appealing, but when I look at the shelf of gluten free books, I want to pick up the one that focuses on baking - so if I did not know you I would pick up the waffle one first!!! However, I would be picking it up for your name alone!

      As a gluten free person, I see the waffles, and go -What! Gluten free waffles? Let me AT this recipe! After 12 years of gluten free, I sooooo miss waffles.

      I like the concept of the waffles, but honestly I don't care for the picture of the waffle itself. ANY body can have salmon; what's so special about that, ya know? Maybe its just the tiny pictures we are having to go by, but I can't tell what's piled on the waffles, so to me it just looks messy and unappetizing. It looks like a savory waffle with sour cream and salmon and capers. While I am certain some people would love that, it just makes me want to go Eww. Its obvious you want to focus ON the waffle, but the rest of the page is so bland with the white plate and white tablecloth, I'd recommend you also do something to make the waffle pic a tad more colorful to balance it out like, say, even a pastel tablecloth. I seriously think you need to re-do the waffle pic to make it look like something people would love to dive into with their fork - or their fingers! You know; like food porn. :) :) Either way, I can't wait for your book to come out!!
