Three centuries of Penny Dreadfuls...

     
My penny dreadful history book enters the production stage now. Its planned publication date is June 2018.
This is a preview of my proposed cover design for Thieves’ Literature. Three centuries of Penny Dreadfuls, Sensational Literature & Popular Melodrama, from the early 1600s to the early 1900s.

  1. Looks GOOD! (I might omit the "1950" [birth year?] after your name.) Attractive!

  3. I think Rick is right -- it doesn't add anything, and breaks the flow. A logo for the publishing company would look good at the bottom of the spine. -- Michael Ward
