    As a graphic artist and designer, I find that there’s something missing in the cover art. Red and black by themselves do not contrast well and can end up being limpid, as is made evident by the major impact of the title. As a potential purchaser I might not recognize at first glance what the game is about, although being Canadian and a historian, I know about the Scheldt Campaign.

    Thank you for the feedback, Jan. It is appreciated.

    I dunno, though– red and black worked for Saul Bass, so they work for me. 🙂
