Design Note #1: I was happy with the layout of the original cover but added a striking photo that will immediately draw in readers.
Design Note #2: A larger subtitle makes it immediately clear to readers that the book is nonfiction.
Design Note #3: Superimposing an image of the flag onto the sky indicates to readers the book’s focus on America. But I kept it subtle so the image doesn’t compete with the title.
Design Note #4: The author’s name is a little lost on the original cover, so I made it more prominent in the redesign.
