Here's what the cover is supposed to look like:
The details of her hair is missing and I can't see the strap across her chest. Everything looks much murkier.
This is the second proof I had done. The first one was darker with less detail, though I could be at fault for a little of that by making the image bluier the first time, but I'm beginning to suspect that the printers do not handle dark covers well. I also wish, wish, wish that we could get them printed in matte instead of glossy. Dark covers are not helped at all by a glossy finish.
Now I'm waiting on Lulu to respond to my help request. I may just have to print another proof. But I hope not. I'm tired of waiting on this, but I do want to get it right.
