what a great cover. Simple and elegant. I'm sure this was a photoshop job. Looks great.

Thanks for posting my cover and for your compliment.

I am not sure how the photographer achieved this image but I personally didn't do any Photoshop editing besides removing the background.

This was just one of those lucky moments when an image search turns up something perfect: its a simple yet strange juxtaposition evoking meaning on its own and within the context of the pages it frames.

As far as I know, there was no photoshop involved aside from removing the background. The image is from Getty. Here is a link to the original:

Great work Scott, this is a gorgeous cover!

thanks for the feedback Scott and LeeAnn. I love the type on this as well. I can't believe that's a chimp's feet!

Those were feet? Pretty polyambidexterous.
