The covers that weren’t

A few more source photographs to go before we start unveiling some of our (rather amateurish) DIY attempts at creating a full cover. This is a composite image of Hailey’s comet, as tracked by Yerkes Observatory. We loved the Carl Sagan je ne sais quoi and font-agnostic handwriting. (And is that a trick of the eye, or are each of these four panels hand-cut with scissors?)

A book cover based around this would have gone well with the first story, and perhaps two or three of the others. But the unanimous B+ rating among staffers meant it never left subcommittee. Stay tuned as we begin to unveil the finalists!
