    Here's a concept I'm working on for a client who's written a medical / religious thriller novel.

    I know the highly textured paper is making the content less legible. That's something I plan to address in the next revision.

    Any other comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    :-D

    Not bad. I think a larger font size would go a long way. Also, the "A Novel by..." should be a bit bolder to make it more legible.

    I don't think it's the highly textured background causing a problem, it's the font size.

    Papyrus? I don't mean to go all font-righteous on you, but it just looks to amateur (which I know you're not ). Maybe that's just a personal gripe, but I can't stand the font. It's comparable to comic sans.

    I don't mind Papyrus. Plus, the body text, which is where the texture can grate, doesn't look like it's Papyrus.

    Heh, yeah, it's Papyrus. I wanted something that looked like it was scratched in with a crude tool. The client actually really dislikes the fonts... she wants something more "tech" - so I'm gonna revise and use all sans-serif. My only fear is that then that badass paper I made won't look right.

    The body text is Times New Roman. The subtitle and heading text are Papyrus.

    If you are going to change all of the fonts, would you go with a non-standard blackletter font. Maybe something a bit more ornate?
