    Which cover do you like best ?

    Hi. I'm self-publishing and I could use some feedback regarding cover ideas. I appreciate the help.
    Edit: Which cover, A, B, or C, would you most likely pick up and read? Which one do you think is best based on only knowing what the cover shows? Sorry for the unclear question.


    Edit 2: Providing new links. Didn't know the images couldn't be seen: https://imgur.com/gallery/feSGdYV An administrator, PiP, also included the covers in a reply below. Thanks!

    which of what? Are you comparing designs, or do you mean the material they are made of?

    Version "C" is more typographically interesting, and I'm partial to illustrative solutions over photographic.

    Versions A and B are a bit bland to my eye, and therefore forgettable.

    I'd probably add a dark band behind the line at the top "FORWARD BY JEAN HOUSTON" as you did in "B", but with a ripped paper look as you did on the bottom of "C".

    Things I like about version C:

    • Typeface is hand-drawn with a script variation, a combination which is like crack to the eye.
    • The type is set at an angle, which increases visual interest and attraction. The viewer is drawn in to investigate this unusual assortment of text.
    • Colors! I love good use of color. The light blue background and bright green lower section use the same colors (or close to 'em) as in the earth illustration. The addition of a paper texture gives the cover a warm, inviting feel.
    • The torn paper texture is more "human" than the cold straight edge of version B
    • The black shape behind the text is interesting. Though I know it's a representation of the statue from A and B, the customer won't know that, which will intrigue them all the more (MYSTERY!). Use of black here sets off and energizes the title font.
    • The illustration is loose and natural. The black shape bleeds off the right edge, inviting the reader to look inside.

    Now I see 'em ! Some nice work in all of them, but I prefer C. I wonder about using a 'blue planet' photo of the earth rather than a map would be my only comment. Sigma suggests a band at the top, I think top and bottom would be 'over the top' (sorry about that).
