Default Book Jacket: CADILLAC DESERT

Like Ohenry this is rushed. Sorry Barbara, hope I make this in time. Hawaii is 5-6 hours later right os we get a break.... don't we?

Anyhow, make it or not, I saw the TV version of this book several years ago and found it totally fascinating. It's actually an exciting premise about the water wars in California and surrounding states.

The original.

and the remake.

The original cover is certainly dramatic, but interestingly enough, your redesign works far better because the picture is immediately recognizable as water-starved land. (What in heck is that thing in the original?) I particularly like how you faded out "its disappearing." Too bad the designer of the actual jacket didn't think of this.
