This cover is based on an old photograph of Esteban as a boy.


He's tending a BBQ.


The print was blurry, so I blurred it more.


I used a title font I haven't used before: Rockwell. In an earlier version, I used the orange you see behind the R and the U, in Trajan Pro 3, a font I often use for titles -- it was OK, but only OK. In the end, the heavier black font was what worked best.


This is one of the few covers that fell into place quickly. Esteban sent the photo, I liked it immediately, he liked it with text . . . done!
