Wren’s Nest Publishing Company — Potential Covers for Wayfarer’s Diary


Written on July 28, 2009 at 3:35 pm, by Lain Shakespeare

Wayfarer’s Diary, this year’s publication from the high school editors of the Wren’s Nest Publishing Company, will be released at the Decatur Book Festival over Labor Day weekend.

The editors engaged two professional designers — Lauren and Lucy — to put in bids for a cover.  I can’t tell you whose is which just yet, but here’s the front cover for one of the bids:

And here’s the front, back, and spine of the other bid:

A Potential Wayfarer's Diary Cover

(Here’s a bigger version.)

What do you think of the covers?  Should the editors should go wavy or dusty?

Your vote doesn’t count for anything (no really, we’ll just throw it in the trash), but the Wren’s Nest Publishing Company editors do read this blog.  I’m sure they’d appreciate your braining.

We’ll reveal the chosen design at the Decatur Book Festival.  See y’all there!
