Galaxacon had a unique form of education. Until the age of 8; off-spring were pretty much allowed to do as they wished. Upon reaching their 8th birth year, they were brought to the central educational center. There they were "exposed" in what was known as the Sapphire Portal. Assimilation was swift and sure. No worries about 'diversity of thought' or 'uncivilized conduct'. In the span of a few hours, the accumulated knowledge of the past was imparted; unique capabilities recognized and each individual assigned tasks for the future growth of the culture.

"Book Covers" has gotten to be a favorite category for me. Are you using supplied fonts & modding them or making your own from scratch?
Wow. A novel in one paragraph. Sir--I bow to you--sir.

I use fonts that came with my 2004 eMac. Then I goof around with them in p-shop.
Kind of a Heinlein-meets-Dr. Seuss vibe. A darkish parable, you know? I get a jolt when you can run with an illustration and nail a satifying context. Nicely done.
The brevity is remarkable!

Thanks guys. I think it's the head cold meds I'm taking right now. Tends to bring out the Dark Irish in me. The cover really speaks of youth, potential, wonder and adventure. The cold meds say otherwise.
