Wow good call on how to keep door-to-door sales men away!

Art direction: I want this cover to scream EVILLL!!! Yes, yes, just like before. But this time forget the pentagram and just put an evil tree with friggin’ lightning coming out from its branches!

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 4.68 out of 10)

Art direction: Right, I want this cover to scream EVILLLLL! Have a cloaked dark figure drawing a pentagram with a big nerd fantasy dagger. Have you ever been LARP’ING? Just like that!

Thanks to CSA!

Hey.

This is just a quick message for those who follow along here at Good Show Sir or for those that are passing by. I apologise for the lack of updates recently and I put it down to not actually having any more book covers in my personal archive. Within the next few weeks I am hoping to get more Good Shows and do a little bit of web site changes to make everything look that little bit more special.

I do know there are people who regularly head to this website even though it has only been up for two months and I have done next to no advertising. It’s much appreciated!! And remember, if you have any terrible book covers then please send them in. Together we can create something truely awesome!

Yours,
– Good Show Sir

WHY! Why didn't I bring any arrows for my bow?!?Click for full image

Just have some muscled dudes on horses, pretty much looking exactly the same. Where we will shine, my good apprentice, is in the title and border. Our colour scheme will be brown and the links will be many. And we’ll have a horse or two leaping over the border giving the viewer a 3D experience! Uhhh well, some sort of experience.

Art Direction: Lets just get Jim from accounting, he works out right? We’ll put him in my air-soft kit and spice it up a little. People who read books love that type of stuff. It will be just like a TV show, but on a book.

Ryan Comments: Yes, a novel by Robert Sheckley. No, I don’t know what he meant by ‘the Sheckley type’ of hero illustration. Maybe it stands for ‘Sheckley & Magazines’ or ‘Sheckley & More’?

Man, I must look awesome. Pity I'm not actually charging at anyone.Click for full image

Nothing says, ‘I’m one hundred percent pure man,’ than a glowing sword, blonde curtains and a cape with some red velvet lining. We’ll have him charging towards the reader on his horse, waving his sword and smiling manically. Make sure the fonts have at least three layers of bordering!
