My book needs a cover...
January 20th, 2008

…and let me tell you, that’s one hard nut to crack, it’s driving me crazy. We are in the midst of developing my book’s layout and it’s anything but a piece of cake! Take a big bowl of your personal style and ideas, throw in a few cups of knowledge from the publishing pros and add a pinch of common sense… sounds simple enough? Yeah right. My head is spinning from all the brainstorming, nevertheless I’m very lucky to work with an incredibly knowledgeable and passionate team – last week one of them even dreamed about my final book cover! Is that a good sign?

???

We’ve been boiling down all swirling ideas for my book’s cover to a shortlist of two, and I really hope that my favorite option doesn’t prove to be just an elusive thought over the next weeks. It is much harder to decide about a book’s dress than about your blog’s – once it is released into the wide world, it’s out. Done. You cannot adapt its look anymore and more often than not it will get judged by its cover. Could it be an impossible mission trying to make the cover a felicitous mix of your book’s personality, coevally arousing the curiosity of people who have never heard of delicious:days, the blog?

???

In the heat of our round table discussions and debates (e.g. I don’t necessarily see *my* face on the cover), it got me thinking what fellow cookbook enthusiasts and especially my blog readers like and dislike about cookbook covers…
