Originally, our distributor sent us their ideas for DVD covers (bottom smaller images.)  We didn’t love them. I had a series of posters envisioned that rhymingly juxtaposed Nature & Development. (Construction Crane vs Butterfly emerging from Cocoon [SHOWN]Spider Web vs Aerial of Subdivision Roads, etc.)

I sent the proposed concept (Big image) for the cover.  But distributor firmly wanted a House on the cover. I understood the reasoning, the Subprime Crisis had just started.  But I never really loved the Cancer Map vs the Swimming Kid image that became the official cover.
