I need a book cover for an eBook.
It must contain the following elements:
* Title: "Objects on Rails"
* Subtitle: "Notes on flexible web application design"
* Author: "Avdi Grimm"
Design guidance: this book is a "developer notebook", so the design should reflect that. I'm thinking the overall design might be inspired by a page from a weathered/worn scrapbook or notebook.
In addition, I want to bring in the "Rails" aspect. For that, I'm thinking the design should include a VINTAGE photo or woodcut depicting one of:
* A railroad repair gang inspecting or working on a rail line.
* Track workers traveling on a handcar
* A track-laying team laying track.
* Some other railroad scene, preferably one that includes the rails themselves.
This design should look good in the following contexts:
* In full color on a web page
* In a list of book thumbnails as in the iBooks shelf view
* As a grayscale image on a Kindle or other e-reader.
* In full color as the first page of a US-Letter-sized PDF file
