Dressed to Impress

I enjoy dressing up whenever the occasion calls for it. But it seems life has become more and more casual to the point where we seldom dress up anymore. Imagine my delight when I was able to dress my book with it’s cover. I wanted it to convey my grandmother’s story in picture form, yet be compelling enough to make the consumer want to pick it up and read. I believe the graphics team at New Book Publishing did a fabulous job. What do you think? Is the storm approaching or leaving? What is the significance of the old shanty? The wheat field?

Below is the full-cover, front and back, as it will appear when printed. Notice the QR code–where do you think it links to? Have fun figuring it out.
