Colour in Nature – book cover design

A Walk to the Water cover design

Dear readers,

Having considered your comments from the previous posts – Cover design and Cover design – an amalgamation experiment – I have now come up with this new front cover design for A Walk to the Water.

The aim was to comprise elements from the three previous works (see below for reference): Colour, companionship, walking, adventure, nature and art. Your advice on the matter has been invaluable, and, should you have a few spare minutes, I would love to hear your thoughts on this new design.

The previous design ideas:

Thank you, again.

Two summers ago I was walking in the French Alps with my brother, when a rather stunning swath of alpine wildflowers caught my eye. From the golden, spherical head of a globe flower to the soft, lavender hues of an alpine aster, the resplendence of the blossoms was so resounding that I soon forgot my peripherals entirely. And that, I can now tell you, is a dangerous thing.

With my left boot dropping awkwardly into an unfortunately placed marmot burrow, I was left to tumble several metres down the vegetated slope, soon grinding to a halt with mud in my ears and flowers in my hair.
