The Cover of Atheism for Dummies

My friend Dale McGowan is writing the book Atheism for Dummies and blogging about the process. He recently had a chance to offer input on the book’s cover and created a checklist for the image that would grace his book:

– Owns the illusion of design

Eventually, he found the perfect symbol. So here’s a mockup of the future book cover:
