Christine Van Bree: Lincoln

Winner of the Crop of the Year Award. Lincoln continues onto the spine, where he is tinted red.

The book chronicles Lincoln's language skills - he wrote his own speeches - in addition to love letters and other writings. It was his skill with language that shaped the nation's attitude towards slavery. And, a "...comic depiction of what happens when two people of the same sex are bedded has a heterodox clarity that reveals his familiarity with bodily realities..." :o

Very Nice! The only beef I have (and it's a small piece of beef) is that the distressed "LINCOLN" typeface is a font. A nice font, to be sure, but I do notice the fake distressing. Odds are, 99.9% of people would never notice.

Good call, Nate. The "N"s in "LINCOLN" are identical. Maybe they could have been slightly different for the sake of that 0.1% of the population.

I agree the Paris design is nice.

I need a book cover designed and I am reading "Predictably Irrational" (she designed the cover) so I decided to see what other covers she designed and found this site.

Great book so far by the way, I highly recommend everyone read it.

Also if anyone knows a decent designer reasonably priced please let me know at:
