This piece here is just an exercise in book cover design by yours truly. It is not an actual cover for the book: there's never been and never will be an edition featuring this cover image here. It's just practice, a quick tribute to one of the favourite sf novels of my early 20s. :nod:

Credits:
• Design, photomanipulation and typography by yours truly.
• Stock photography by =resurgere
• Stock brushes by various authors (names unfortunately lost, contact me if you have them, I'll edit this entry here.)

Please note again that there will be no commercial release of this cover, so all stock resources are used legally.

Hope you like it! :nod:

I think I accidentally included this in my jornal entries about (published) book covers for Gibson! This was so well made that I didn't realize it was  fan cover when I discovered it on Google! (And my memory is so bad that I didn't remember I'd already added it to my group's gallery). Apologies!

Don't worry, Lizzy, it's in fact an honor that you've mistaken this for a published cover. :nod: Thanks for noting me, though, and for the kind words as well. :)

Gibson örök! Ez egy méltó "tribute" lett gratulálok! Nagyon jó lett az arc sejtelmessége és a typo is teljesen jó. Szóval klafa! :)

Ez bejövős lett, főleg az alja tetszik a betűtípussal meg a derengéssel mögötte. Meg az egésznek a színvilága.

SZVSZ a legjobb konyve, szoval erdemes... magyarul is lattam egy par honapja, igenyes kulso, a forditas minosegerol sajnos egyelore nem tudok nyialtkozni...

btw., ha javasolhatok konyvet, Pelevintol a Metamor Szent Konyve lenne az, annak nagyon nem tetszik a (magyar) boritoja...

Hű, a Metamor SZK borítójára már nem emlékszem, de a kötet maga, az zseniális volt. :nod: Már csak idő kéne... :D
