Responses to Option A
1
It speaks more to the title of the book since it speaks of a downed pilot.
2
well you said downed "pilot" right? as in, singular. the other one has 3 dudes
3
I like seeing the pilot on the cover
4
If the book is about a single pilot Choice A is better because Choice B leads the reader to think it is about 3 pilots
5
I like the image of one guy, assumed the main character, next to his plane.
6
The picture is more personalized and looks better
7
It's more representative of the topic I feel like.
8
I like this one with the additional character in it.
9
is more detailed and shows the character
10
The other cover looks more like people at war, not just the downed pilot. I like that it puts the pilot up front on the cover.
11
I like that the front cover would show focus to the main character. It also seems a little brighter/eye appealing than the other one.
12
The image of the pilot tells you that the book is about him.
13
Since the book is about a pilot, I think Choice A provides a better visualization about what the book is about.
14
I think the photo explains the title better.
15
Choice A is more interesting.
16
I like the picture in A better
17
Looks more like it's about a pilot, the other looks like a war novel.
18
Since the book is about a pilot (singular) I prefer the image with one person as opposed to three.
19
I think the cover looks more high quality
20
A makes more sense for a single pilot, the picture on B sort of implies there's multiple pilots.
21
It has a picture of a pilot and plane, very relevant to the plot of the book.
22
Includes a picture of a pilot so I know what it's about
23
The illustration prominently features the pilot's face, which gives me a more personal connection to the story.
24
I choose choice A, because I find it to be much more patriotic, and blends in with the image..
25
It has a picture of one pilot instead of three and allows mt imagine the journey of one pilot.
Responses to Option B
1
Option A really dates that book. I'm not always interested in historical fiction. Though you may be able to hook me if I start reading.
2
I like this one because it has more soldiers
3
The cover shows the men running, it would make me want to hear the story
4
It looks more exciting, you can see that they are rushing.
5
A is okay. However, B seems to include more people and seems far more inclusive.
6
This cover looks less cluttered.
7
It seems like the book is about the escape less the piloting, so highlighting him on the ground is better
8
The cover impacts more
9
It just looks more relevant to the content of the book.
10
This cover better illustrates the danger involved.
11
Looks more action-oriented
12
Simple and effective design
13
B looks exciting and entertaining between the two.
14
The proportions in choice A are strange
15
more simple, looks less cluttered
16
i like the black on this version
17
this looks best
18
The silhouettes of the soldiers add a sense of solemnity.
19
The soldiers apparently coming to the rescue make this cover.
20
I think the cover is more fitting of the name.
21
It has a bit more "mystery" to the image.
22
The image looks better here.
23
Shows both infantry and air force.
24
i like the 3 soldiers instead of just one
25
B represents the title a bit more, as it shows people actually running away.
