Yeah... this would have been a WHOLE BUNCH easier if I'd had the idea to make it an image of the whole book (instead of just the cover) from the beginning. As it happened, I didn't figure out that I wanted to do it... until I'd already completed the textbook cover.

THEN, I had to build the book around it. *sigh*

I should have thought ahead. This is all made from scratch...

Well, I took a photo of the spine and another of the bottom pages of my son's Chemistry book. Then merged them with my newly-created Biology cover.

Of course it's you.

Beautiful publishing house logo.

I know it is an impossibility, but my mind wants the frog to be staring in the direction the book is facing.

I expected a thicker book, with your available research material. Hehe..

I thought this was very good. Great choice for cover of a biology book.

A good looking text book. I like the representation of the whole book, and the slight hint of wear. It's not sterile, looks like it's been off the shelf a few times.

Most people reading this review won't really have a choice in the matter, since this is a textbook, but let me just say that Biology ain't what it used to be. Frankly, the "modern" biologist is a wimp. You can't make an omelette without cutting stuff up, if you know what I mean. Dr. Victor Frankenstein accomplished more in a few months than these crybabies have done in years. The best use of this book is to drop it on your specimen before you cut it up. How's that for anesthesia?

If this is not Lydia, amazing job on the toad. If it is Lydia, fair job. Either way well executed and angling the book in the frame is a great idea.
