Breaking news for my loyal blog readers: today I got the proof pages (the very last step before the book goes to the printer). I wasn't sure what the designer would do for the front piece, but now I can see it. And I like it a lot, even better than what I had suggested with the "poster-like" graphic I shared months ago. This looks perfect for an older audience, and it's clean and crisp. (But I'm not sure if the FRIENDSHIP is a bit too big.) Thoughts?
So you tell me . . . if you just see the journal entry, are y'all smart enough to figure out Andi is writing it down somewhere (especially since it's in cursive) without me needing to include "Andi's Journal" every single time? Or should there be a date, maybe? (Date = a lot of work for me to go back and find them.) Check it out below and tell me what you think about needing (or not needing) a label on each journal entry. You can see it up close by clicking on the new STORY EXCERPT, which I updated with the new fonts and things (since the JPG below is rather small and hard to see). Let me know before September 26!
