In designing the Writer’s Edtion of Null_Pointer, I decided to do something fun for the cover. In order to honor the hard work of my graphic designer brother, I decided to keep his covers. However, I wanted something that would separate the Writer’s Editions from the actual book covers. Enter the Invert method in Gimp, my image editor.
I simply inverted the image and then added a typewriter font that said, “Writer’s Edtion”. Clever, interesting and yet still identifiable with the book itself. These hack jobs show you what I mean.
I think they look pretty cool. Oh by the way, the Starstrikers Writer’s Edition will hopefully come out shortly after or in conjunction with the re-release of the book in a second edition this summer.
