I’m currently in the process of replacing the cover of The Model Universe and The Hawk And His Boy. I’m also having a cover done for a collection of humorous urban fantasy short stories called The Mike Murphy Files. Anyway, the brave and talented Josh Adessi has been working on the cover for The Model Universe. Here’s the cover illustration…
…and here’s what I’m thinking about for the text design for that cover. The illustration is done, but the text design is up for change. If you have any thoughts on that, let me know.

I actually like the text design you’ve got there.
I thought I’d play around with it a bit – sort of a quick creative challenge. Here’s what I came up with: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewmccauley/5430377700/
I can’t say it’s any better than what you have, but it was a fun exercise.
Nice. I like how you placed the title text on the left. I think I’m definitely going to do that as well.
I like! I like very much! Only thing I might think of adding would be reflection of the planets and stars in the glasses.
…darn. That’s a great comment. I wish I’d thought of that a week ago. I’m going to check if Josh, the artist, would be willing to try that reflection.
