He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven - New Cover

Here's a second attempt at a cover for this book. I used some silk noil I had that came very close to the colours inside the book, and a corset ribbon style binding on the end, to get something to go with the whole cloth/embroidery theme, and, I hope, a feeling of luxury and richness. Unfortunately the velvet ribbon I had wasn't a strong enough colour, so I used satin instead. It matches better but I would have liked the texture of the velvet.

  1. Definitely, absolutely, much, much better! Somehow the poem always makes me see this sort of blue and gold in my mind - so for me, this cover works so well! It's a great little book, Jennifer and I bet that cover feels luxurious!
