Help choose the winning design for King's Highways & Steam Trains landing page

January 23, 2017

After a couple of weeks of designers from all over the world submitting mock-ups for the new landing page for the series King’s Highways & Steam Trains, I have narrowed the field to three candidates. Please help choose the winner among these three! Their efforts can be seen here:

Please note a couple of things when you follow the link. Firstly, click on the desired design to open it in your browser. And, secondly (and this is the important step), hover over the design and click on it again to enlarge it. In all likelihood, the design will then be bigger than your screen. But you will see all its details and be able to scroll around with your screen controls. Use the “back” key to return to the menu showing all three designs.

When you have reviewed all three designs, please do the following:

  1. Assign each a score on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) by clicking on the appropriate number of stars.

  2. Add any comments that you believe can help me choose a design. These comments can be inserted under any of the three designs.

Thank you in advance for your time and thought. As always, if you wish to submit comments in confidence, simply send me an email at

Once the new landing page for King’s Highways & Steam Trains is up and running, I will run a cover design contest on Volume 2 in the series. The first draft for that book is complete and preliminary photo selections have been made.

Again, that link for those three finalists in the design contest for the King’s Highways & Steam Trains landing page is:
