At Canaan's Edge

Pretty incredible photo, but I'm not crazy about how the title frames Dr. King -- it's just too tight.

It looks like the marketing department pulled their 'make it bigger' move on the type. Had the title (and author name) been smaller but with some heft to it, I think you'd see Dr. King's face more. Currently its fighting with the title, and the only thing you see clearly is the kid in front (note that the kid's face is not competing with any type).

I think you're probably right about the involvement of marketing, Ingrid.

In fairness, this is the third in of a 3-book trilogy about the life of Dr. King, and the type probably needs to be as it is for the purposes of tying it into the series.

Unfortunately, this is probably the wrong photo to use in a design with series-type parameters
