We need a book cover dust jacket (full hardcover, including back
cover, spine, and flaps) designed for an author's fiction thriller
novel called The Atlantis Project. Title is still TBD, but please use
that as a working title.
Author name: Nick Thacker
Size: 6" x 9", .75" spine.

planet's surface, complete with bat-like creatures, bear-like
creatures, and strange shadowy shapes. Consider POV of looking down
into/out and over the expansive dome.
