Proposed Cover for Review
For print on demand version of Takaaki Matsumoto's book
I have drafted a cover for a print-on-demand version of Dr. Matsumoto’s “Steps to the Discovery of Electro-Nuclear Collapse” book, so that those individuals and institutions that want to have a properly bound and nicely printed book for their library or STEM courses, can get it easily.
Please take a look at my effort and check for any errors please.
I included one of my favourite SEMS of his (something that we replicated effectively with Ohmasa gas on Indium), which shows the eruption of synthesised carbon from a lead ball in an experiment that did not contain carbon at the beginning.
The reason I put the colour hexagon Fig. 10 from page 218 in the book, is that it is the only colour image in the whole book and it is so much clearer to read with the colour - and we only have colour on the cover. The dead space to the bottom right of the bock cover is where Amazon will insert the bar code and ISBN number.
The original book format was in A4, this print-on-demand version is 215.90mm x 279.40mm because Amazon prints this in more markets. If the content does not fit, I may have to adjust it to A4 as per the original and accept that it cannot be printed in all markets and interested parties in those places will have to wait for the totally remastered version I have been working on with Phillip Power.
Anyhow, please let me know what you think.
Current version (V3):
Version 3 with fold and crop lines and space where barcode/ISBN goes.
Thankyou for all those that contributed to cleaning this up, improving its readability, font allocation and layout both in direct communications and by way of comments here - it was a real community effort!
NOTE: The original cover, as per the free pdf, will be the first page of the inside of the book.
