Which cover?

My publisher has sent me 3 mock-ups of the cover for the book.  Which of them do you think will sell best?  (I know which one I like best, I think, but that is less important than how well the book will sell.)  I’ve converted their files to PNG for the blog—the real covers have much better resolution.


Peach cover


Blue cover


Brown cover

2021 Dec 28: We’re going with the blue cover.


  1. Strong preference for the “Blue cover”. Looks great.

  2. Definitely the blue cover!

  3. I think the white cover will sell well because it has all the different parts of the circuit coloured in, which makes it look less intimidating for people who do not know electronics very well.
    [for example people can follow the Vp and the Vout].

  4. All of them are pretty good. But the 1st and the 3rd have an ‘old textolyte’ color. I mean brown and biege. Sweet for me.

  7. I like the Blue, but that doesn’t mean it will sell better.

  8. The blue. Looks cooler. The white is just boring. The brown is nice but I really like the bottom pattern on the blue.

  9. We’re going with the blue cover. The generic “tech background” at the bottom (which looks like many tech backgrounds from stock image sites—it may even be part of the Adobe Illustrator library) is appealing enough to people to justify including it.
