Re: [BKARTS] Reflections on bookart and commerce



Here's my inexperienced view, for what it's worth:
If the whole concept is based on the look of the paperback, then it would be
taking the essential part out of the work to do it in hardcover.  Why not
package the book instead in a more decorative way, including a classy information
sheet describing the design, the process and the concept behind the work, and
the number of the edition details?  That way the publisher has a more
attractive or 'collectable' package to market, and you keep the intrinsic design of
the book intact.
