Your assistance in choosing a book cover for “My Old Clock I Wind and Other Poems” would be much appreciated

As many of you are aware, I am in the process of publishing a further collection of poetry, “My Old Clock I Wind and Other Poems”.

The collection derives it’s title from the first poem, which is entitled (appropriately enough) “My Old Clock I Wind”.

I am in the midst of choosing a photograph for the book cover and would greatly appreciate your views on the photographs featured here, which show the clock from which the book derives it’s title.

Comments concerning the quality of the images, which picture you prefer and why (together with any other input) would be much appreciated.

Version 1: Clock Close-up

Version 2: Clock

Version 3: Clock and Picture

    I like the first one and the angle. However, you need a whizzy photo friend to get rid of the glare from the camera shot. Photoshop experts can do it. I am not one so I am impressed when friends do it for me. Also, I don’t like the font for the title, the rest is fine. Plus, it is taking away from the image on both one and two. OK on three, but that is the flattest of the lot.
    So in terms of layout, three works better, more striking (so to write), but the third, although dull, is a better composition.
    Reduce the size of the image on one? Give space for the title (and change the font).

    I like the first version best, it has an element of drama to it. My only suggestion would be that the font isn’t startling, I would probably choose something a little ‘heavier’ to make it a bit clearer but also give the cover some added gravitas. Well done, Kevin!
