Superhighway book cover.

Post by Phikim »

It is said that a picture speaks a thousand words. Regarding the cover of Superhighway book, do you relate cover and the content of this book? Is there any relationship between the cover and the content?

The cover design is quite simple and more of an abstract. But it equally conveys a strong relationship with the content. I can see a clear connection between the cover design and story particularly on the conceot of travelling through the internet. So, I totally agree that this is the perfect cover for this book.

I think that cover page connects to the message that says knowledge is the key that unlocks the success door.

The content of the book matches the cover. I guess it was derived from the experiences that Alex went through while traveling in the fiber optic cables.

I agree with is. Or that represents the path to the door.

There are probably better options that might replace the current cover of Superhighway, but I really like the cover as-is. It's abstract, but it reminds me of the images Alex describes when he's traveling along the internet superhighway itself.

The cover isn’t anything powerful but I understand it, similar to the book title!

Yes, there is relationship between cover and content of the book. It represents the scene of optical passageways through which Alex travels.

The cover seems to be kind of abstract, but at the same time it links the cover to the story. When I look at the cover, I feel like it looks as if you are traveling through something. It also has the lights on it and that reminds me of the light packets Alex talks about.

I like the cover. As you all said, it is abstract, but it gives the vibe of a fast-paced adventure with a futuristic touch. It fits the title "Superhighway" well enough, too.

The cover relates to the book, it fits the title, but it's not as visually appealing as it could be!

I like it. It's abstract but fits well once the main idea of the book is understood.

I definitely see a connection between the image and the book, particularly Alex's mode of transportation through the Internet. I think the cover is interesting because it is not a full image. It is eye-catching and engaging.

The cover seems to speak for itself. You can obviously see that something's going at high speed. Obviously, you're not going to immediately grasp the plot of the book but in the context of Alex's ability to move through the internet and the ease and swiftness with which he does so, I think cover fits.
