Book Cover

My editor, Simon St. Laurent, sent me a copy of my new book cover. The tagline is currently being changed, but when the art department is finished, I’ll post a copy.

It’s a companion book to JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, which features a rhino on it’s cover. So what could be more appropriate for a Learning JavaScript book than a baby rhino? It’s adorable.

The book tagline works, too. In fact, it’s forming the basis for the Learning JavaScript site design. Oh, how I wish I had graphic skills; I don’t, so I’ll have to muddle along. Regardless, it’s going to be a fun site.

I am so pleased to be back working with, and writing about, scripting. I like lightweight technologies. Always have; always will.

    Simon St.Laurent is my editor as well…perhaps you can tell me what to expect from him…I’ve given him three chapters and I haven’t heard one word…

    Anthony, Simon has been on the road for conferences, and that usually cuts into the communication time. As you near the end, you communicate with your editor much more frequently.

    I just finished my, 15th I think it was, book, and with editors, no news is good news usually. However, drop him a note and ask him how’s it going.

    What’s your book about?

    Tentatively titled Ajax Web Development.

    Simon told me my cover would be an animal, but I don’t know what animal it will be yet.

    Guess I’ll keep plugging away until I hear otherwise.

  4. Cover animal vote…..
