Opinions wanted on a cover art
« on: December 02, 2018, 02:14:07 PM »
Honest opinions please. My upcoming science fiction novella is being edited by the publishers (LL-Publications) as we speak. Here is a draft of the coverart. We are experimenting with the font and like its boldness but is it readable for you? The story involves human astronauts on another planet. There is an alien butterfly involved. (you know me so it isn't really a butterfly). It's the font - what do you think please?
I don't know how to show photos here now that photobucket is a pain.

I'd really appreciate comments. So far on facebook and twitter - 40 against and 20 for ie 40 say they have too much difficulty reading the title SUPPOSE WE and 20 say it came to them straight away and they liked it.

Great image but the title takes some deciphering.

Thanks.
It's a risk isn't it, to be bold, experimental and yet not put potential readers off.

 I like the cover art, and I even like the font, but the placement of the letters makes it difficult to read for me. I think reading left to right would make it readable and more visually appealing.

I'm color blind, so not an "average" reader of color designs. However, I found the text, title, and name, to be a tough read. Might be because of the broken text style.
