Book Covers, Colours and Thumbnails

Sometimes the cover that looks better big isn’t the same one that looks better small. Since a lot of people will only see the thumbnail version of a book cover, it’s important to make sure you choose one that looks good “from a distance”. For example, the black outline and shadow text effects on the first of these covers looked awful as a thumbnail. The second cover was a notable improvement (even though I still prefer the first cover at normal zoom.)
