CSI and Dark Angel both look great. Keep 'em coming. How are multiple spines going to look on CSI?

I'm fascinated on how you've managed to get all of the show logos so clean (.eps logos?), and even used fonts that look exactly like the ones used on the shows. The color pallette rocks too.

Bravo.

Thx

For most of the series them I've been able to find either a Font type or EPS so far ... so that made recreating the logo at hi-res rather easy. For some however I had to redraw them from scratch and apply effects where needed, for example the MacGyver logo. It's the only way to get decent results.

My pleasure.

It's great when you can find a show font that's accurate and clean enough to stand up to high res viewing. This is where I wish I could afford Fontlab or Fontagrapher - if I can't find a font or EPS, I would try to scan and create a quick font for the logo, or build a basic alphabet for use on the cover.

Maybe someday, but I'm quite a few pennies away.

(MacGyver was from scratch? Sweet!)

Looks awful.

Seriously, the logo looks fantastic and if it I hadn't been told, I would have thought it was the actual logo.

Go ahead. Pat yerself on the back.

Couldn't agree more.

I enjoy it as well, and it's challenging. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Is the Law & Order b/g image the same as the NYPD image?

First post updated with Las Vegas.

Hmm ... I'm thinking the logo could be a bit brighter, from:

Any thoughts on this ?

Scara where are you finding such hi-res images to use for the spine?

Google mostly ... but because of the radial gradient and the overlay colour the images don't really have to be high-res or razor-sharp ... that being said this one was 3000 by .... pixels though.

Chances of finding real images going from 6000 to 9000 pixels wide are pretty slim I think
