    There are a lot of good designs here. however, I can only choose one winner. So I have created a poll. Could you help me to decide which one is the best? Here is the URL: http://www.freelancer.com/contest/poll-NTg4Mzc6MQ==

    I am not saying the other designs are no good, there are only maximum 8 designs can be selected for the poll. You are still welcome to submit entries. I can never know. Maybe the best entries would be submitted at the last moment.

    Thanks for your entries.

    Right now, I think Entry #30 looks promising.
    1. It is colorful but still looks professional.
    2. The graphics highlights the "LIFE" of steel pretty well.
    3. The graphics is simple and elegant.

    thanks for everyone's entry so far. It seems to me, most of design entries seems very gloomy and dark. Could you make the design more upbeat and colorful.
    I think the design entry #21 by earthprincess5 show some promises. I am sure you guys can do much better.

    CH, I apologize. I see now that you included that information in the zip file provided. It did not download properly initially. I will begin working on this project for you right away!

    CH, there is certain information missing to make proper artwork for your book. 1. How many pages will your book be? (This is important when trying to calculate the spine width) 2. What size publication will you be using? (ie. 6"x 9" or 8" x 10") Just a note: creating artwork that is print ready can be very tedious and there are several things to consider. Please be aware that a contest like this may get you artwork that you like, but it may or may not be usable without knowing all the important specs upfront.
