Tilting at Torii

by Leif Maplesson

Hi, Owen,
I looked through hundreds of photos and tried many combinations of elements, colors, etc. Nothing was as dynamic as this cover. Everything else was boring and dry which is why the background is still exactly the same. This was the only young samurai that actually looked like a girl and not a young woman. She’s wind-blown and tattered making her more dynamic and not just standing there. The colors pop and are the muse of the scene. We have traditional Japanese ink painting but modern composition.  Please scroll down for more design analysis and full cover images.

Please Note: Any imperfections will be corrected upon design approval. Colors will render according to individual computer monitor settings. Print and digital are two different mediums. Please order a hard copy from the printer to review for color/tone adjustments. For example, gloss covers tend to print darker than matte.
