I’m glad early commenters think the basic cover idea looks good! Please pick one. Comments regarding background color and borders are fine — that’s exactly what I would like — but let’s just please note ahead of time that I reserve the right to not spend fifteen hours trying to get Canva to produce a particular type of border when it REALLY does not want to do that.

Prefer the second, the background color on the first makes the whole thing look washed out.
(on my monitor, at least.)
Laughing because I like the lighter one better … so, so far, we are no help whatsoever!
I like the first, lighter, cover!
I prefer the second, overall. The aged parchment color has an eye-catching texture. I also like the black border enclosing the artwork in the center.
The typefaces are also subtly different. I slightly prefer the typeface from the first cover.
The second works better for me, too.
I think that on the shelf, the first one will look washed out, but I’m not a big fan of the combination of the parchment background with the greens and blues of the image. Would a blue background perhaps work, or another solid color that picks up the color themes of Tuyo and Tarashana’s covers?
I agree with others that the way the words are arranged (/font?) looks better on the first one.
i like the second one better too, the tigers pop out with a darker background
I like the second, darker, richer color—it makes me think of the sandier soil of the summer country. I do think “World Companion” should be spaced to line up with the tiger picture, because currently it’s running too close to the cover edge.
