If I correct that and then do an accept to update the version on your files, will I lose all the correct colours again or will it be OK? The trouble with these proof readers is that they keep finding errors! (more) and gained+3

As long as the cover looks something like the revised pdf I think it will be excellent. And they said the grass wasn't greener on the other side! My grass now looks green and the blues and yellows have got their spark back! I will not order another proof copy now, I had already ordered the second one that is winging it's way to my proof reader now. I'll now wait until we have all finished the proof reading and then I will update the manuscript one more time and then get one final proof copy just to check the cover again. That will take a couple of weeks I would think. As I say though, the new pdf, after you have played with it, looks fabulous and I can't now see anything different to the book cover generator version. Many thanks once again Oli, I know I am a pain, but I am determined to get this one right all the way through after the headaches we had last time. Best wishes David (more) and earned+3

    Oliver Brooks posted a message to David Watkins Hi David, I'm working with the printer to improve the cover colours. In printing the colour is...Hi David, I'm working with the printer to improve the cover colours. In printing the colour is made by putting 4 layers of ink down Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (CMYK). Key is the base colour which is normally black. The issue is that paper can saturate with too much ink and then it smudges/leeches. LS restrict coverage to 240% which is to say if each layer is 100% the sum of the 4 layers should not exceed 240%. This in itself can be worked around but when the colours are converted from over saturated to the restricted colour space they can change. I'm working to match up the colour profiles so the translation is more accurate at the moment. I will use your cover as a test case to tweak and see if I can match it up. So give me until tomorrow until you order the next proof and we can check the cover colours together. Oli (more) and bagged+3

The black and white photos in the book are excellent and work really well. BUT I am disappointed with the front cover. If you look at the cover on screen, the yellow of the tunnel and the blue of the carpet looks really vibrant. However, on the proof copy of the paperback they are both dull and grey looking. I have a feeling that it may be the quality of the photo yet at teh same time. usually, the actual hard copy picture is always sharper. Any thoughts? I have made further proof corrections to the text and am about to order another proof copy but thought I'd run this past you first. Any comments? (more) and received+3
