  1. Asa mai vi de acasa: scurt si la obiect, fara traduceri intortocheate. Incet, incet, incepi sa-ti revi.

  2. Bun.
    Si de artwork ce zici? Acum am ajuns la concluzia ca noi, romanii, ne plingem degeaba in ceea ce priveste coperta romanelor.Flood o vad castigatoare de departe, dar cu ce concurenti!

  3. La partea de artwork, “Cover of Subterfuge” este redirectat catre un site din China, raportat ca “Attack Site” de Firefox. Eu as scoate link’ul ala urgent, sincer sa fiu.

  4. Mie coperta la Subterfuge mi se pare superba.

  5. Flood n-are o ilustratie rea, dar layout-ul mi se pare banal pina la dumnezeu. Swiftly bate de departe.

  6. @Stefan, nu stiu de Mozilla dar la mine la Opera se duce direct la cover…

    Cana impartita in bucatele,mmm, not:) Tot Flood bate ca impact vizual, cu tot cu layout-uri banale sau nu:D

  7. Hmm, acum merge, se duce direct la poza. Ciudat.

  8. Si eu as alege Flood, pentru ca arata despre ce e vorba in carte, adica dezastre/curatiri/purificari de timpiti de pe globul ocular. Sau nu ?!

  9. Poate cu ocazia asta graficienii nostrii vor lua aminte si nu ne vor mai tortura cu copertile oribile cu care ne-au obisnuit in ultimul timp.
    O carte are sufletul ei, multe suflete sunt damnate din cauza acestor ” mutilatori “,mai este nevoie de exemple?
