Here's the cover to an upcoming book called "Cunningham's Magical Sampler" from Llewellyn Worldwide. Not my usual thing, but I thought it came out nicely. Please click on the picture for a larger view!
It's got a sort of odd composition here because the left side is wider in order to wrap around the spine of the book. Also, the middle part may seem like it "needs" something, but that's where the text goes so everything is composed with that in mind.
I used some Lens Blur around the bottom edge to give it a slight depth-of-field effect. That's a great tool that I'm just now exploring.
