My images used as bookcovers

Hello,
this morning I encountered another work of mine on the cover of a book that has recently been published in Italy. I thought this a good moment to show some covers and pictures that you won't know from me, because I never posted them before.
I must admit, that it has been a goal / a dream of mine when I started with photography, to find my stuff used as a book - or record cover one day.

How to apply them

In general I would recommend to use the lighter colored textures with the Multiply or Overlay/ Soft Light blend mode. The dark ones add a lot of grit, grain and other effects. These you should start to use in Screen or Lighten blend mode.
Of course, you can always play around a see what works best for you!




Here is also a small screenshot of the layers :
