3. Planned paperback size is 203mm x 127mm published via a POD site like CreateSpace
4. Mia's Optiscope, is the first book the in a series called Nilimbian Dreams.
5. We're after a powerful clear image to draw the attention of book readers across the globe.

Mia enters into the realm of Nilimbia via a large Rubik's cube located on Maroubra Beach, Sydney (see Google for images of the actual Maroubra Beach cube), a land of 'DreamWeavers', half creature half human, who are guardians of life. The ‘Nilimbian’ in our world has only animal features. The only clue that they are netherworld is the moonstone pendants they carry to cross between realms.

For the cover of The Optiscope, the first book the in the series by Natalie Rose and Nick Walsh, we seek a powerful clear image to draw the attention of book readers across the globe.

    Hi Artists, thank you for your entries. There are some great ideas so far. I like the reflection in the lenses of glimpses into the past from Dienel96. I also like the old school combo of brass and wood that kdecaires214 used. I have updated the spec because it seems I wasn't clear enough on what the Optiscope was. Please check the spec. Note, this is a book for 8-13 year olds and is Fiction. Thanks again and good work guys

    You'll have a lot better luck getting what you want if you use Deviant Art. I know this from experience and from changing tons of bad covers that I got on this site. $100 doesn't go far here.
