Can I See Your ID? – Blue Cover

With any book in the publishing industry, the cover is always very important and a lot of things are tried out before reaching the final result. So it's not unusual that we made a last minute change to the cover for Chris Barton's Can I See Your ID?, coming out in April from Dial Books for Young Readers

Reverting to the initial version that I suggested, we changed the color scheme to a blue one. I liked the red version, but then I think the new one is a bit more ominous rather than aggressive. I kind of like them both, so I'm glad that Dial made the final call.

Thanks again to Designer Jasmin Rubero for working so hard with me on it. The book is now available for pre-order from Amazon, and IndieBound and will be in stores April 2010!
