When I happened upon this photograph, I had no clue what I might use it for, but I just knew I needed it for something. Fast forward several months, and this author came along looking for something in this vein. The title text was a bit of a challenge, not because it was difficult to design but because it needed to stand out over the subtle photo but still look like it belonged. Plain, flat text on a cover like this would have looked too generic. After going through pretty much every range of every effect at my disposal, I found that black and white — with a little flair to the black text — worked just fine.
