Bare Ruined Choirs: book cover creation

In order to create a book cover, I have begun closely examining the covers of other books. I extend my admiration to those graphic artists who design such things. It is a subtle craft, where even a line, the length and width of a line, the brush stroke of a line, the beginning and end of a line, the color of a line--where all these details can have a major effect on the image and its effect on the viewer.

My goal at this time is to have my book of poetry available by December of this year. That is one of the advantages of Print on Demand publishing. It can be pretty fast.

What do you think of this cover? Comments are welcome.
